Almanac of Uzbekistan is a unique publication which includes valuable information on the dynamics of economic reforms, results of the reforms in particular sectors of economy and regions during the 20-year period. The publication intends to enhance the awareness of the readers, particularly the government officials, representatives of private sector, scholars and students, local and international investors about key directions and achievements in the socio-economic development of Uzbekistan since it had become independent.
Accelerated economic growth since mid 2000th allowed to considerably increase public expenditures in health care. Still there is a growing concern that in the longer run government alone would hardly be able to meet the growing need of the sector.
The Development Focus One-pager (#3) analyzes key factors of the growing expenditures for the health care by the Government of Uzbekistan, as well as provides some options to finance the sector.
