Medical assistance to the military

Ensuring military security is one of the main state objectives of the national army of Kazakhstan. Along with its modernization and technical upgrade, emphasis is placed on the social security of servicepersons. Just like ordinary citizens, active military personnel and their family members as well as those discharged from military service because of age or state of wellness are entitled to free medical care.


How is medical assistance provided?

Medical assistance is provided to servicepersons at specialized military medical institutions in Almaty. If there are no appropriate departments or special equipment at such hospitals, you can contact other public or private medical institutions within the scope of guaranteed medical care.
