Assessment of COVID-19 Experience and Perception by Population of Kyrgyzstan

COVID-19 pandemic is one of the major challenges at the moment. Kyrgyzstan, as a country with a relatively high poverty level and depending on remittances from labour migrants, has faced complex issues requiring an immediate response. The Government of the Kyrgyz Republic undertook measures targeted at curbing the pandemic. However, the current epidemiologic situation requires more close interaction with a population in general for ensuring strict adherence to public health recommendations.

For this purpose, the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic, with support from the UN system in the Kyrgyz Republic and other development partners, has launched the National Communication Campaign #SAKTA under the overall guidance of The Republican headquarters for the prevention of the spread of COVID‐19.

This research is aimed at the collection and analysis of baseline data in relation to indicators of the national campaign. This research, commissioned by UNICEF, was conducted in November 2020 by Rebicon Research Company.
