WHO Training on ICD-11 for North and Central Asian countries
TAGS

The 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases classification (ICD-11) is being rolled out across North and Central Asia by the World Health Organization (WHO) through training programs.
Ministry of health representatives from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan completed training last month on the revised coding system, which allows for the provision of more accurate and up-to-date data on morbidity and mortality.
With more countries adopting the classification system, the aim of the training was to familiarize countries with the content, structure and changes to improve coding skills, data quality and reporting of causes of death.
