Status

Health care remains a major issue in Kazakhstan. In 1995, every fourth person suffered from respiratory diseases. Most cases of respiratory diseases appeared in Almaty, Eastern-Kazakhstan oblast, Semipalatenskaya oblast and Karagandinskaya oblast where the level of emissions from transport, ferrous and non-ferrous metal industry was the highest and where nuclear bombs were tested. The highest concentration of tuberculosis was in Atyrauskaya oblast, Kyzylordinskaya oblast and Easter-Kazakhstan oblast where the quality of water is lower than normal. Half of the population suffered from cancer especially in regions where industry was located. The highest level of mortality was in Eastern-Kazakhstan oblast, and Northern-Kazakhstan oblast, where 13.6 and 12.1 people died per 1000 in 1995.
