What is China’s Belt and Road Initiative? And how is it related to Kazakhstan?08 February 2019The “One Belt-One Road” Initiative, also known as the “Belt and Road” Initiative (BRI), is a project which was first announced in September 2013 by President Xi Jinping during his visit to Kazakhstan’s capital, Astana. Ambitious in every sense of the word, the project envisions China’s implementation of large-scale infrastructure projects on at least three continents, costing a total amount of more than 900 billion dollars.

Kazakhstan, in turn, is geographically critical to the BRI’s success, due to the key land routes connecting China with the rest of Eurasia all passing through its territory.

Wireless heart implants to be provided free of charge for Kazakh citizens06 February 2019According to international statistics, 26 million people suffer from chronic heart failure (CHF) in the world. About 900 thousand new patients are diagnosed annually.

Transplantation is the gold standard in the treatment of this pathology, however, due to the shortage of donor organs, the use of mechanical support for the heart is actively developing. In this regard, the use of innovative technology - a fully implantable heart support system – has become a revolutionary breakthrough in the surgical treatment of CHF. Kazakhstan has become the first country in the world which performed the implantation of a mechanic heart.
