According to the information distributed by the channel "About public procurement" on Telegram, the questionnaire developed by the service provider should contain at least 30 questions on medical topics. In addition, HLS-EU-Q should be based on the standard international questionnaire (European Health Literacy Survey Questionnaire). It contains 47 questions about the availability of medical services, the patient's understanding of the instructions and prescriptions prescribed by the doctor, and other nuances of the citizen's interaction with the health care sector.

The study is planned to be conducted in five cities of Kazakhstan within a year:

Nur-Sultan and Shymkent - 700 respondents each;
Almaty - 800;
Ustkemen and Aktobe - 400 people each.
Any resident of these three cities over the age of 18 can participate. A total of three thousand people should participate in the survey.

Six specially trained interviewers analyze the collected information using medical statistics methods. On the basis of this, proposals for improving medical literacy in schools and higher educational institutions are developed.

The company executing the order must submit the research reports by December 10.

No applications have been received for the announced tender yet.
