To generate a clear idea of existing communication structures, resources, framing, relations and guidelines, this research evaluated the current situation with respect to COVID-19 related communication across the health care system in Kazakhstan at both national and regional levels, coordinated by the Ministry of Healthcare of Kazakhstan (MoH). Based on this, a set of recommendations is proposed to enhance the overall communication capability of the MoH and the health system at large. A qualitative design was employed that comprised a desk review, SWOT analysis, stakeholder analysis, and interviews with FGDs.
