Abstract : Over the past decades of years’ general practitioners (GPs) became the front men of health care provision in Kazakhstan. The country’s government is committed to increasing availability of GPs with a focus on teaching of critically thinking professionals capable to maintain the level of care envisaged by international standards. This study aimed at provision of descriptive analysis on distribution of GPs in South Kazakhstan region in comparison with the whole country and to describe the basic health indicators in relation to the manpower available. This was a retrospective cross-sectional study, which was based on the data obtained from the Registry of medical manpower established by the Observatory of manpower resources in health care. There was an insignificant variation in the proportion of GPs out of all medical professionals between South Kazakhstan region and the whole country. Regionally, the supply of GPs grew abruptly from 4.76 per 10,000 populations in 2015 to 7.37 per 10,000 populations in 2016. This growth was also established at the national level and ranged from 4.56 per 10,000 populations in 2015 to 4.72 per 10,000 populations in 2016. In response to increasing supply of GPs, the decreasing rates of all-cause mortality, declining numbers of heart and infant deaths were observed both regionally and nationally. Increasing GPs supply is generally associated with many favorable outcomes related to population health. There is a need to conduct longitudinal studies in order to reveal effects produced by increased GPs supply on health indicators of Kazakhstani population
