Non-governmental association “Coalition for Democracy and Civil Society” interviewed Kyrgyz citizens regarding the state benefits. The nationwide telephone sociological survey was conducted from 26 to 30 July, 2019.
According to the Constitution, Kyrgyzstan is a social welfare state, i.e. its social policy is aimed at ensuring adequate material terms, human existence and free development, and overcoming unjustified social differences.
The most important purpose of the social welfare state is to ensure social equality. One of the main tools for this is the social security of the poor, the disabled, the elderly people, and others, through the payment of social benefits and other types of state benefits to citizens. This allows ensuring equal and fair opportunities for personal development.
