With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, so dissolved the union-wide medical societies that provided members with professional journals and facilitated the exchange of information on new practices, medicines, etc. The Kyrgyz Medical Association aims to fill this gap by promoting information exchanges between medical professionals and health-oriented NGOs within Kyrgyzstan and abroad. Other goals of the association are: establishing ethical, educational, and clinical standards for the medical profession; protecting the professional rights of physicians; improving public health; and making health care more accessible in Kyrgyzstan.

A print version of much of the information contained in this Central Asian Third Sector Organizations section can be found in Civil Society in Central Asia (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 1999).
