In the Kyrgyz Republic, child marriages occur in all regions of the country and among all ethnic groups. Poverty is in some cases a factor, but cultural attitudes towards gender roles and sexuality are more significant.

This is one of 14 country overviews produced by UNFPA EECARO about child marriage in the region, including country-specific national and legal context, responses, data, and recommendations for the future.
