3. Analysis of the current situation

In 2019 WHO designated ten main challenges facing health care systems of the whole world. Threats of bystry spread of infections remain (flu pandemic, Ebola epidemic, epidemic of human immunodeficiency virus - HIV), and integration of economy of the Republic of Kazakhstan into the trade and tourist relations increases risk of import and spread of infections. The refusal of vaccination, antibacterial resistance as a result of irrational use of antibiotics attract increase in death rate from infectious diseases. The burden of such noninfectious diseases as diseases of the blood circulatory system, new growth, diabetes and diseases of respiratory organs accrues. From external threats of health of the population technogenic air pollution and climate change are most urgent.

Risk factors of noninfectious diseases

In Kazakhstan the main burden of noninfectious diseases is the share of 7 leading risk factors: the increased blood pressure, tobacco, alcohol, the increased content of cholesterol in blood, the excessive body weight, insufficient consumption of vegetables and fruit, slow-moving conduct of life. So among the Kazakhstan teenagers (children from 10 to 19 years) of 5% have obesity and 20% of children have excess weight. Consumption of salt in Kazakhstan exceeds recommended indicator of WHO, according to some information four times. Day-to-day consumption by Kazakhstan citizens of fruit and vegetables is lower, than the Central European indicator.

By results of estimates in 2015 28% of men and 25% of women are more senior than 18 years had the increased arterial pressure. The latest data of assessment of level of cholesterol show that 46% of citizens at the age of 25 years and are more senior have the increased level of general cholesterol.

In general the current damage caused by noninfectious diseases to economy of Kazakhstan makes 2, 3 trillion tenges a year that is equivalent to 4,5 of % of annual gross domestic product of the country for 2017. Progress in decline in mortality by the main noninfectious diseases (further - NIZ) managed to be achieved in the countries of OECD thanks to WHO recommendations and separate projects, such as reducing consumption of salt due to improvement of structure of foodstuff; holding information campaigns in mass media and implementation of references on packagings; prohibition of use of trans-fats in the food industry, increase in excises on tobacco products and alcohol, acceptance and implementation of the laws on prohibition of the calculation of tobacco products, smoking prohibition in public places, introduction of the taxation of sacchariferous drinks.
