The questionnaire by ISAAC technique was conducted in 2002. Employees of the National centre of motherhood and childhood protection participated in research. The ISAAC team in Bishkek was: Imanalieva Cholon, Najimidinova Gulmira, Boronbaeva Elnura, Djanuzakova Nurgul and Moldogazieva Aigul. The ISAAC team in Balykchi was: Moldogazieva Aigul, Seitalieva Chiinara and Asankojoeva Janyl.

Before the questionnaire study began, letters of support from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of science, formation and culture of the Kyrgyz Republic had been prepared and these departments gave the consent to carry out the research. In Bishkek 8194 children were questioned. 3146 of them were at the age of 6-7 years and 5048 children were aged 13-14 years and attended comprehensive schools. In Balykchi 2111 children were surveyed in all the comprehensive schools of the city, 729 aged 6-7 years old and 1382 aged 13-14 years.

Participation in the research has given us the invaluable experience of performing a large questionnaire study under international standards. The data have helped to achieve a representation about the prevalence of allergic diseases in the Kyrgyz Republic. Some elements of the questionnaire have now been introduced in medical institutions for diagnostics of allergic diseases.

We wish ISAAC creative successes and well-being.
