Citizens’ Budget: Public Healthcare Expenditures in 2021

December 4, 2021

“Citizens’ Budget” – an annual publication produced by the joint project of UNDP and the Ministry of Finance “Financing for Sustainable Development in Uzbekistan” – provides the public and civil society with information on the State Budget of the Republic of Uzbekistan. Throughout the year, citizens have access to three publications: adopted annual state budget, executed state budget for the previous year, and the draft state budget for the next year.

This year, the series of publications on the state budget is complemented by public healthcare expenditures. The new publication is devoted to healthcare expenditures, which are approved and implemented in accordance with the Law of the Republic of Uzbekistan dated December 25, 2020 “On the state budget of the Republic of Uzbekistan for 2021”.

In this publication citizens can find detailed information on healthcare spending for 2019-2021, the structure of expenditures by budget levels (republican and local), expenditures on outpatient and inpatient care, as well as in the context of capital and current expenditures, including salary costs and capacity building.

A separate section reveals expenditures on government programmes to improve the reproductive health of the population, protect mothers and children, and reduce social and difficult-to-treat diseases.
