Kyrgyzstan Gains EU Aid for Health, Legal Reforms

The European Union will allot USD51 million to support legal and health care reforms in Kyrgyzstan through 2013.

Michel Voisen, head of the French delegation to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Parliamentary Assembly, announced the funding at the second Trans-Asian Parliamentary Forum in Almaty, Kazakhstan, which ran from May 14 to May 16, Ria Novosti reports.

OSCE is keen on supporting Kyrgyzstan’s interim government if it lives up to its pledge of stabilizing the situation in the nation and carrying out health care reforms, Voisen said.

A violent civil unrest led to the ouster of President Kurmanbek Bakiyev in early April.
