For continuity of child health protection, school medicine is transferred from the education system to healthcare, uniform school feeding standards and a suicide prevention program are also being introduced.

In the second direction on the integration of all health services, measures have been taken to ensure the availability of primary health care. These measures helped achieve a reduction in maternal, infant mortality and mortality from malignant neoplasms in the whole country.

On the third direction for ensuring the quality of medical services, according to the 82ndstep of the Nation’s Plan "100 Concrete Steps," a Joint Quality Commission has been established whose tasks are the approval and implementation of new standards and technologies for the provision of medical care.

Within the framework of the fifth direction, preparations are being made for the introduction of compulsory social health insurance. In 2017, a risk analysis was carried out and due to the high number of self-employed people, the implementation of the CSHI was postponed.

The sixth direction is the effectiveness of human resource management. The deficit of medical staff was reduced due to changing conditions of admission to practice for pediatricians, obstetrician-gynecologists and other highly demanded specialties.
