Kyrgyzstan has faced both infectious disease epidemics and the continuous effects of climate change. The country held one of the highest tuberculosis rates in Central Asia in 2014. Abt’s work in Kyrgyzstan supported government action, local non-governmental organizations and community groups in their battles against infectious diseases. Our projects help strengthen health care systems and train health workers at the local level. We worked to put an end to heroin traffic routes in Kyrgyzstan prisons to prevent the further spread of HIV/AIDS. We addressed key climate change vulnerabilities in the country, providing landscape management, greenhouse gas emission data and self-governance strategies. Working within the C5+1 Central Asian partnership, Abt helps C5 countries, including Kyrgyzstan, create a collaborative foundation for addressing conflict and combating climate change through diplomacy.
