Current Aspects of Disability in the Kyrgyz Republic
Keywords:Disability, Person with disabilities, Situation on disability, Medical and social expertise, Kyrgyz Republic.
The objective is to study the epidemiological characteristics and assess the system for establishing a disability
in the Kyrgyz Republic.
In establishing disability, a biomedical model of health is used, which does not provide an objective assessment
of a person’s condition. This study analyzes data on the disability situation in the Kyrgyz Republic, which
indicates a steady annual increase in the disability rate. For children under 18 years of age, the establishment
of disability and assignment of the category “disabled child” is biased, since only the state of health and
dysfunction of the child’s functional abilities are assessed and, despite the difference in the severity of the
condition, the possibility of work capacity and the ability to participate in education is not evaluated.
