ASM has been working in Central Asia region since December 2010, primarily in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. ASM supports initiatives that fight TB, which is increasingly one of the major causes of death of HIV patients in Central Asian region. The major challenges for the clinical laboratories in these countries remain lack of supplies and reagents, lack in capacity of laboratory workers, low salaries and high turnover of laboratory staff, and a lack of infrastructure and equipment. ASM works to improve the technical capacity of the laboratory network to provide effective services across the country.

BioResource Centers (BRC)
The purpose of the BioResource Center (BRC) is to provide scientists, educators, laboratorians, policy makers, and students with cutting-edge scientific resources, training, and increase their knowledge-base of biological sciences. BRCs serve as locations for scientists and stakeholder to convene; offer access to cutting-edge scientific resources; and provide ongoing professional development training through scientific webinars, virtual workshops, and also on-site workshops and lectures.
Ambassadors to Kyrgyzstan
The Country Ambassador would be a senior scientist that represents ASM in Kyrgyzstan, facilitating partnership and exchange with other scientists worldwide, while the ASM Young Ambassador would be a dynamic young leader, who also represents ASM in Kyrgyzstan, facilitating networking, professional development, and collaboration to strengthen science globally. The ASM Young Ambassador mobilizes the next generation of scientists to develop innovative approaches to meet the Grand Challenges in Science.
