When the country became independent in 1991, the National Society was recognized by the decree of the Kyrgyz Republic’s President. From 1997, the Kyrgyzstan Red Crescent is a full-fledged member of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and now has a history of more than 90 years of humanitarian activity. In its strategy for 2017 – 2020, the Red Crescent Society of Kyrgyzstan focuses on four priority areas: health, disaster management, social care and organizational development.
