The idea and vision of Human Development is that the true wealth of a country is in its people. Human beings should be seen as the ends in themselves, rather than the means to achieving progress within the socio-economic development of a country. The Human Development concept is about broadening people’s choices and enhancing their capabilities and freedoms, enabling them to live long and healthy lives, have access to knowledge and a decent standard of living. Extensive work has been conducted by UNDP to promote Human Development in Uzbekistan.
