ASM has been working in Central Asia region since December 2010. Economic challenges in Kyrgyzstan following the fall of Soviet Union led to poor resourcing in the healthcare system. The major challenges for the clinical laboratories are lack of supplies and reagents, lack of capacity of laboratory workers, low salaries and high turnover of laboratory staff, and a lack of infrastructure and equipment. In Kyrgyzstan, ASM works to develop better microbiology laboratory infrastructure and training modules.
