Kyrgyzstan has made significant progress in reducing child mortality compared to other countries in the region, despite its relatively low income. However, maternal mortality is still high. Using the available birth registration system, the authors sought to comprehensively assess trends and determinants of reproductive health and the health of mothers, newborns and children under 5 years in Kyrgyzstan. To meet and exceed targets necessary for the survival of newborns and stillbirth reduction (Sustainable Development Goal #3), Kyrgyzstan needs to expand the help system for young sick infants, ensure quality care at all health facilities with regional perinatal care, and create an integrated national registry for mothers and newborns with rapid feedback mechanism and accountability.
