Dear site visitors!
We are glad to welcome you on the blog platform of the National Center of Public Health of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan (hereinafter – the Center).
As we all know, health is an invaluable asset of each person individually, and of the whole society in general. When meeting and parting with people close to us, we always wish them good health, because this is the crucial aspect of a full and happy life.
Our center is collaborating with the Autonomous Educational Organization “Nazarbayev University”, medical universities of the country, international organizations in the field of public health care such as World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the International Association of National Public Health Institutes (IANPHI), etc. And we are ready to cooperate with everyone who shares our ideas.
With the aim of developing the potential in public health care, we are developing such projects as the WHO “Healthy Cities”, “Healthy Workplaces”, “Health-promoting schools”, “Healthy Universities”. Besides, the research activities and international projects based on the WHO methodology are being implemented by us like Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS), Global Youth Tobacco Survey (GYTS), WHO European Childhood Obesity Surveillance Initiative (COSI), Health Behavior in School-aged Children (HBSC), etc.
We believe that together we will be able to launch a global movement for health promotion, increased physical activity as a component of a healthy sustainable future.
The official blog of the head of the Center works in an interactive question-and-answer format. I invite you to ask your questions, leave comments, and share your opinion. You will receive answers to all your questions online. They will not remain without my attention and will certainly be considered.
