HistoryEdit

The Ministry of Healthcare was founded on the basis of the Ministry of Healthcare of the Kazakh SSR. Aksultan Amanbaev became the first minister but he soon resigned. As a result, Vasily Devyatko took his place.

In October 1997, a reorganization of ministries took place in the Cabinet of Ministers of Nurlan Balgimbayev. Having united with several other state structures, the new ministry received the name: the Ministry of Education, Culture and Health which Krymbek Kusherbayev became its minister. And Vasily Devyatko became the chairman of the Health Committee of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

In 1999, after another reorganization, this central executive body became known as the Ministry of Health, Education and Sports. In November 1999, the ministry was reorganized into the Ministry of Education and Science, headed by Kusherbayev. While the health sector was transformed into a separate structure which was the Agency of the Republic of Kazakhstan for Healthcare. In October 2001, the Ministry of Healthcare was re-established. Zhaksylyk Doskaliev was appointed minister.

The ministry lasted until 6 August 2014, where it was merged with the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection into the Ministry of Healthcare and Social Development.[1] Tamara Duisenova, former Minister of Labor and Social Protection, was appointed minister, and the Minister of Healthcare Salidat Kairbekova became the First Vice Minister of the new state body.[3]

By the decree of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated 25 January 2017, the Ministry of Health and Social Development was once again divided into two ministries.[2] Eljan Birtanov was appointed as the Minister of Healthcare.[4]
