ALLERGISTS IMPROVE QUALITY OF SERVICE

The Ministry of Healthcare issues special passports to all patients suffering from allergic diseases. It also implements other significant initiatives. They help to solve many problems, which were raised by social network users within the framework of our “Temporarily accessible” project. Chief allergist of the country, director of the Republican scientific-specialized allergy Center Ozodbek Nazarov spoke in more detail about them in an interview with an Uzbekistan Today correspondent.

“It is obvious from the incoming questions to the “Temporarily accessible” project that there are issues related to training qualified specialists for the needs of medical establishments…”

“Unfortunately, this problem does exist. Hence, our Center conducts on a regular basis all kinds of workshops and master classes devoted to introduction of advanced technologies in addition to mandatory qualification improvement courses, which all physicians are bound to attend.

“A number of issues are being resolved within the framework of the latest order. In particular, from now on all allergists will undergo qualification improvement training courses at our Center.

“Another novelty is the introduction of a chief allergist position in the regions; so far we had only the position of a chief allergist of the Ministry of Healthcare of the Republic. The appointment of chief allergists in the regions will promote the improvement of the system of coordination of this service and solution of regional problems.”

“You used to say that starting with the year 2017 it was planned to improve the provision of patients with medical preparations at the Government account.”

“The talk is about rendering emergency medical assistance to patients suffering from bronchial asthma. From 2017 onwards the patients with bronchial asthma attacks will be provided with inhale glucocorticoids on account of the state in rendering them emergency assistance. To date, in such cases, patients are provided free of charge only medication required for symptomatic treatment and for withdrawal of life-threatening conditions and symptoms. At the same time, all the medicines for the subsequent specific treatment, and these patients are treated with inhaled glucocorticoids, they purchase in the pharmacies themselves.”

“I have information that Uzbekistan plans to shift to usage of domestically produced therapeutic and diagnostic allergens; so far all these preparations are all being imported.”

“There is such a project and we have already conducted negotiations with a number of pharmaceutical companies. The thing is that we have to shift to the use of therapeutic and diagnostic allergens made from local raw materials for improving the quality of medical assistance to patients suffering from allergic diseases.

“Take, for example, an allergen, which causes atopic bronchial asthma – household and industrial dust. Multicenter studies have shown that the composition of the dust of local settlements significantly differ from that which the imported products are made of. One of the differences is mite species that live in the dust, which are the major irritants causing allergic diseases. It is obvious that the drugs made from local raw materials will be more effective.”

THEY HELP TO LIVE

The Republican Children’s Neurological Hospital named after U.Qurbonov, the only one in Central Asia, marked its 50th anniversary.

The first phrase, which resounded at the conference held on the occasion of the jubilee, was quite reassuring and inspiring. Chief Doctor of the clinic Dilorom Vokhidova stated, “The number of children with cerebral palsy and perinatal pathology of the central nervous system has decreased by 30% during the last ten years in Uzbekistan, which was the result of the development of the screening centers and perinatal centers network that assist women and mothers with complicated pregnancy. At the same time, with the development of medical technologies specialists of the hospitals had acquired greater opportunities to help children in need of their assistance.”

The conference has turned into a kind of master class for specialists of the Republican Psycho-neurological hospital for children’s doctors working in the regions. Dilorom Vokhidova stressed that “it is important so that the doctors are aware not only about the existence of this clinic in the Republic and what modern technologies we apply for the treatment of children, but doctors should also sent children to this clinic as early as possible to ensure the highest possible results: the earlier we start the treatment of children with perinatal pathology of the central nervous system, the lesser is the risk of development of the cerebral paralysis, and the earlier therapy of children with the cerebral palsy diagnosis will enable to stop the progression of the disease and achieve higher results of their social rehabilitation.”

Today the hospital is designed for 250 cots and structurally it consists of 10 departments. There are five children’s playgrounds with various simulators and attractions, a sport ground, race track and two indoor pools on the territory of the hospital. They are all designed to help rehabilitate our patients. But the most important difference between this institution and the centers involved in the treatment of such patients on the territory of Central Asia is a strong medical component. Specialists in foreign countries pay more attention to social adaptation rather than the treatment, specialists explained.

The center’s experts are the trailblazers in the introduction of advanced technologies into medical practices in the treatment of children with such diseases. In particular, it is the first place to use such a drug as a bоtulinum toxin-A: it allows achieving maximum relaxation of muscle, prone to contracture, and stable result.

Many a technology has been applied so far solely at this clinic. Specifically, the surgical treatment of contractures of upper limbs is carried out only at this hospital among all other clinics of the Republic.

Doctors of this medical establishment keep improving the level of their professional qualification; they conduct activities on the introduction into practice the advanced methods of diagnosis and treatment.

SALVATION IN THE CELLS

In recent years we hear more and more often about new techniques based on molecular medicine and cellular technologies as a panacea against diseases, which only yesterday had been considered incurable. Today, these technologies are available not only at super smart clinics in far-abroad countries, but also at the medical institutions of Uzbekistan.

A rather efficient network of healthcare establishments has been set up in Uzbekistan, which ensures the population access to quality medical assistance. The network of rural medical stations deserves special attention in this respect. The establishment of these institutions, the overall number of which has reached today three thousand, significantly simplified the life of rural residents in terms of getting qualified medical assistance, conducting diagnosis and treatment of all wide-spread diseases. The republican specialized centers and scientific-research institutions have been involved in the development of high tech medicine. It’s really nice to see that personnel of all medical establishments live through the process of introduction of advanced medical technologies. And there is no doubt that all these initiatives will find tomorrow the government support. The development of the healthcare system has been outlined in all presidential candidates’ pre-election programs.

The Department of Molecular Medicine and Stem Technologies under the Scientific-Research Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion is one of the leading sub-divisions among the establishments of the Ministry of Healthcare on the introduction of these technologies. Its specialists were the first in the Republic to introduce the technology of stem cell treatment. To be more specific, literally the other day they operated on the patients suffering from lymphomas. Last week head of this Department, Professor Hamid Karimov responded to questions of social network users within the framework of Uzbekistan Today’s “Temporarily accessible” project. These and such other events were the subject of our talk with the Professor.

“Hamid Yakubovich, having analyzed the incoming questions during your participation in the “Temporarily accessible” project, we realized that today the willingness of patients to be treated with the use of advanced technologies somehow outpaces the real possibilities of the healthcare system. What is your stance on this newly emerging trend?”

“To introduce and apply in practice a new development is often turns out to be more difficult than to tell about it to the public at large.  The Internet and television erase all boundaries in the information delivery chain. Today our compatriots have access not only to the output of national, but also foreign media; there is a wide choice of programs informing the public about advanced technologies, to be more specific, about medical technologies. It turns out that we get information about new opportunities in the treatment of complicated ailments, which only yesterday were considered incurable, practically on a daily basis. The majority of these developments today is linked with the molecular and cell technology medicine. And such we are made of that, quite often, we miss the other part of information, which says that the talk is about research work and clinical tests. Hence, at times our expectations outstrip the real opportunities of medicine in general. And one has to keep in mind that sometimes it takes several years or even decades from the moment of discovery up to its implementation into practice.

“We try to implement those diagnostic and treatment technologies, the efficiency of which has gone through the test of time, i.e. have been proved by practice. Seven years has passed since we started to set up our Center for the treatment with hematopoietic cells, and only during the last two years we have been conducting medical manipulations. Overall, twenty patients have been treated so far. We consciously keep long intervals between the treatment of patients to be able to track the efficiency of therapy. The treatment of all our patients up until now produced positive effect: we have achieved the pathology remission. Thus, this year we have gone along the road of expansion. We started to treat not only patients with myeloma but also with lymphomas using hematopoietic stem cells. However, not everything depends on physicians. To date, we treat patients with their own stem cells; with the adoption of the Law “On transplantation” we will be able to treat also those patients who need donor stem cells.”

“Modern technologies provide an opportunity to collect and store umbilical cord blood at the birth of a child, which is rich in stem cells that could subsequently be applied in the treatment of a patient himself. Why do we not create such repositories today, because they will dramatically reduce demand in donor cells, the sampling and selection of which is a very labor-intensive process and arouses numerous ethics-related complaints?”         

“A question, similar in its meaning, was also asked by the users of social networks within the framework of the “Temporarily accessible” project. We keep thinking about it, moreover, we study the global experience in this field. Services on the collection and storage of stem cells, isolated from umbilical cord blood at birth, are generally offered by private medical clinics. In order to start this business in Uzbekistan, we are ready to create all necessary conditions on the basis of our institute. Our Turkish colleagues offer their help in this endeavor.

“However, it has been agreed to concentrate on the development of the Center on the treatment with hematopoietic stem cells and develop on its basis the treatment of various diseases with the use of stem cells. All these activities still remain at their initial stage. Gradually, we will expand also the scope of assistance. I think that when we will have accumulated substantial experience, which will allow us to say “Yes, we did achieve good results in the treatment of a number of diseases with stem cells”, it would be possible to proceed with the creation of necessary conditions for the collection and storage of umbilical cord blood. Considering that the list of grave diseases, which may be cured with the use of stem cells, has been increasing the creation of such ‘hemabank’ would be definitely justified. Of course, it’s great when a person has a ready stock of the preparation, which he or she may need for the treatment of serious diseases at a later age. This will help solve a whole number of issues in preparing a patient for the treatment with stem cells, including such a complex issue as donor selection and treatment with the use of this preparation.”

“Everything is clear with treatment, but there have been in fact a lot of questions, and rather justified ones, on the project with respect to diagnostic methods. One of our reader’s questions literally sounded like this: “Why many genetic diagnostic methods are not available today”?

“I can assure you that everything is being done in this country to make these diagnostic methods more accessible, and this is done in a sensible and rational way. If we diagnose, we are bound to use the received information for the treatment of a patient. The Ministry of Health is working hard on the creation of a necessary infrastructure. In particular, our laboratory, the Center and the department have been set up within this process; more work is being carried out to establish a laboratory on the basis of the Tashkent Medical Academy. Moreover, necessary sub-divisions are being set up on the basis on many centers and numerous issues are being settled on fitting them out with relevant equipment and training their personnel. But it is not a quick process; and again, it’s rather expensive and requires a thorough approach.

“It should also be borne in mind that the introduction of many technologies does not provide an opportunity to blindly copy the experience of our foreign colleagues, it requires conducting extensive preliminary scientific research. And I can assure you that to date, such studies are carried out on a wide range of pathologies in Uzbekistan, and they are supported with the government grants of the Committee for Coordination of Development of Science and Technology, which means that they will soon be implemented into the practices of medical centers of the country.”

«МЕДИЦИНА ЛЕЧИТ ЧЕЛОВЕКА, А ВЕТЕРИНАРИЯ ОБЕРЕГАЕТ ЧЕЛОВЕЧЕСТВО»

Сегодня в различных уголках планеты усложняется эпидемиологическая обстановка, возникают вспышки летальных вирусных заболеваний в животноводческой отрасли, что представляет опасность жизни людей, приводит к экономическому спаду в агропромышленном комплексе, что представляет угрозу благополучию населения.

В связи с этим в Узбекистане осуществляется широкомасштабная работа по совершенствованию ветеринарной службы, предупреждению проникновения и распространения болезней среди животных, обеспечению продовольственной безопасности. Результаты принимаемых в нашей стране мер в данном направлении были обсуждены в ходе пресс-конференции, состоявшейся 19 декабря в Национальном пресс-центре Узбекистана.

В ходе мероприятия было отмечено, что за годы независимости в республике создана солидная нормативно-правовая база, способствующая развитию дехканских и фермерских хозяйств, в том числе животноводства. В частности, важным руководством к действию служат Законы «О качестве и безопасности пищевой продукции», «О ветеринарии» в новой редакции, Постановление Президента Республики Узбекистан «О мерах по дальнейшему реформированию и развитию сельского хозяйства на период 2016-2020 годы», Постановление Кабинета Министров «О мерах по дальнейшему совершенствованию подготовки молодых кадров, повышения квалификации, а также стимулированию специалистов ветеринарной службы».

Согласно данным, озвученным на встрече, в настоящее время 45% производимой в Узбекистане сельскохозяйственной продукции приходится на долю животноводства, что является результатом увеличения поголовья и повышения продуктивности животных. Так, в 2006-2016 годах из Беларуси, Польши, Австрии, Германии, Голландии и других стран завезено около 69 тысяч голов племенного скота. Только в текущем году для улучшения породы животных искусственно осеменены более 1,4 миллиона голов коров и нетелей.

Как было подчеркнуто выступавшими на пресс-конференции, одной из основных задач ветеринарии является защита населения от инфекционных заболеваний, ведь медицина лечит человека, а ветеринария оберегает человечество. С учетом эпизоотической ситуации в мире и иммунного фона животных узбекскими специалистами реализуются масштабные профилактические мероприятия. За текущий год 29,7 миллиона животных и 58,7 миллиона птиц вакцинированы против 8 и 4 видов болезней соответственно.

Наряду с этим, проведены дезинсекция на 220 тысяч местах содержания животных и более 27 миллионов голов животных против эктопаразитов. На государственной границе более 76,6 тысяч заезжающих в нашу страну автомобилей и 4,1 тысячи железнодорожных транспортных средств прошли ветеринарно-санитарную обработку. В стране также придается особое значение повышению осведомленности населения о заразных болезнях, общих для людей и животных.

За последние годы значительно укрепилась материально-техническая база ветеринарных учреждений. В 2016 году в Бухарской и Хорезмской областях введены в эксплуатацию региональные диагностические лаборатории, отвечающие мировым стандартам. За 2015-2016 годы приобретены более 2,6 тысяч термосумок для хранения вакцин и доставки патологических образцов в ветеринарные лаборатории, 1,9 тысяч холодильников и 470 оборудований, необходимых для обеспечения безопасности пищевых продуктов.

В целом благодаря осуществляемой в данной области работе сегодня на территории Узбекистана наблюдается благополучная эпизоотическая обстановка.

Говоря о ситуации в нашей столице, главный ветеринарный инспектор Ташкента Малика Саттарова в интервью ИА «Жахон» отметила:

– В настоящее время в городе ветеринарную службу ведут более 300 специалистов. При каждом дехканском рынке созданы лаборатории ветеринарно-санитарной экспертизы, которые осуществляют проверку пищевой продукции животного и растительного происхождения.

Мы также регулярно осуществляем дезинфекционные и дезинсекционные мероприятия, направленные в основном на борьбу против клещей, которые являются переносчиками злостного заболевания Геморрагической лихорадки Крым-Конго. Помимо этого, все животные, зарегистрированные в Ташкенте, вакцинированы против сибирской язвы.

РЕЗУЛЬТАТЫ СОТРУДНИЧЕСТВА В СФЕРЕ МЕДИЦИНЫ

В нашей стране уделяется особое внимание социальной защите населения, особенно пожилых граждан и малообеспеченных семей. В этом направлении важную роль играет сотрудничество государственных, общественных структур и международных организаций.

Группа специалистов благотворительной организации “Silоаm Center For The Blind” Республики Корея в составе врачей-офтальмологов, медсестер, работников социального обеспечения прибыла в Республику Каракалпакстан.

В рамках визита опытные врачи госпиталя глазных болезней “Silоаm” провели медицинский осмотр пациентов в Офтальмологической больнице Республики Каракалпакстан и выполнили более тридцати операций.

Врачи и президент благотворительной организации “Silоаm Center For The Blind” Чой Донг Ик высоко оценили сотрудничество между нашими государствами. Международная благотворительная организация предоставила офтальмологической больнице гуманитарную помощь – офтальмологическое оборудование и лекарственные препараты 500 наименований на 54 тысячи 500 долларов.

– Совместно с Министерством здравоохранения Республики Узбекистан реализуется ряд проектов, – говорит заместитель председателя Международного благотворительного фонда “Соглом авлод учун” Н.Муминов. – В их числе проект, проводимый при сотрудничестве с благотворительной организацией “Silоаm Center For The Blind” Южной Кореи. В рамках этого проекта трое врачей офтальмологической больницы Республики Каракалпакстан приумножили свой опыт в Южной Корее. Теперь на месте будут проводиться сложные глазные хирургические операции.

ГЕНСЕК ШОС: «ВЫСОКОИНТЕЛЛЕКТУАЛЬНОЕ МОЛОДОЕ ПОКОЛЕНИЕ УЗБЕКИСТАНА МОЖЕТ ВЗЯТЬ В СВОИ РУКИ ЕГО БУДУЩЕЕ»

В рамках празднования 15-летнего юбилея Шанхайской организации сотрудничества ее секретариатом был объявлен конкурс среди студентов государств-членов на лучшую научную статью на тему: «15 лет Шанхайской организации сотрудничества: Становление. Развитие. Перспективы».

По итогам мероприятия Генеральный секретарь ШОС ответил на интересующие студентов вуза вопросы.

ДЛЯ ДАЛЬНЕЙШЕГО РАЗВИТИЯ ИКТ

В Ташкенте состоялась международная конференция, посвященная внедрению “облачных” технологий в Узбекистане. На ней обсуждались современные тенденции их развития и влияния на IT-индустрию.

В мероприятии приняли участие представители Министерства по развитию информационных технологий и коммуникаций Республики Узбекистан, а также заинтересованных министерств и ведомств, специалисты и ведущие разработчики в сфере “облачных” технологий, представители малого бизнеса и частного предпринимательства.

Было отмечено, что в соответствии с постановлением Первого Президента Ислама Каримова «О мерах по дальнейшему внедрению и развитию современных информационно-коммуникационных технологий» от 21 марта 2012 года в Узбекистане продолжается расширение сфер применения ИКТ. В частности, ведется активное внедрение специализированных программных комплексов и интерактивных услуг в деятельность государственных учреждений. В этой связи значительно возрастает роль внедрения современных “облачных” технологий, которые способны повысить эффективность и создать новые возможности при эксплуатации различных устройств или программного комплекса.

На мероприятии были обсуждены вопросы повышения эффективности инновационной деятельности за счет внедрения “облачных” технологий в Узбекистане. В частности, разные виды “облачных” вычислений могут оказать значительное влияние на традиционную форму телекоммуникаций, национальный сегмент сети интернет и промышленность страны. С помощью вычислений, хранения данных и сетевых ресурсов в рамках “облачной” инфраструктуры огромная вычислительная мощность станет доступна в любом месте, в любое время без больших затрат.

В рамках конференции были представлены современные разработки в сфере “облачных” технологий, в том числе для субъектов малого бизнеса и частного предпринимательства.

– Современные научные достижения открывают перспективу создания экосистемы открытых “облачных” технологий, – сказал генеральный директор китайской компании “Huawei” в Узбекистане Ван Пэн. – С ее помощью крупные телекоммуникационные компании, разработчики местного программного обеспечения и национальные контент-провайдеры смогут сотрудничать и работать вместе для обеспечения более локализованного и своевременного обслуживания населения, в целях дальнейшего развития индустрии ИКТ.

В завершение мероприятия состоялось обсуждение перспектив внедрения “облачных” технологий в различные сферы экономики и общественной жизни Узбекистана.

ЗДОРОВОЕ НАСЕЛЕНИЕ – СИЛЬНАЯ СТРАНА

С первых лет независимости в нашей стране придается приоритетное значение вопросам укрепления здоровья народа, особенно охраны материнства и детства, воспитания физически здорового и духовно развитого поколения. Как отмечал Первый Президент нашей страны, только здоровый народ, здоровая нация способны на великие дела.

Уверенной поступью продвигаясь к этой благородной цели, мы становимся свидетелями того, как во всех сферах жизни нашего общества, в том числе в системе здравоохранения осуществляются масштабные реформы. Так, создана единая и слаженная система медицинского обслуживания населения, охватывающая все уровни здравоохранения от сельских врачебных пунктов, районных и городских медицинских объединений, областных многопрофильных медицинских центров, оказывающих первичную медико-санитарную помощь, до республиканских специализированных медицинских центров по оказанию высокотехнологичных медицинских услуг. Кроме того, в 10 республиканских специализированных центрах, организованных на базе научных медицинских школ, оказывается высококвалифицированная медицинская помощь по таким направлениям, как хирургия, урология, кардиология, глазная микрохирургия, акушерство и гинекология, педиатрия, терапия и медицинская реабилитация, дерматология и венерология, фтизиатрия и пульмонология, эндокринология.

Прогресс не стоит на месте. С развитием технологий перед медицинской наукой ставятся все новые и новые цели. Отрадно, что научный потенциал, которым обладают специализированные научно-практические медицинские учреждения нашей страны, шагает в ногу со временем. В результате научных исследований отечественных ученых на актуальную тематику были разработаны более тысячи лечебно-диагностических стандартов по более чем двадцати направлениям медицины. Следует отметить, что реформы, нацеленные на развитие медицинской системы, расширяют доступ населения к качественной медицинской помощи. Почти все современные методики лечения, практикуемые в ведущих странах мира, сегодня с успехом применяются и в нашей стране, показатели здоровья населения не уступают аналогичным показателям в развитых странах. Самое важное, отпадает необходимость проходить лечение за рубежом. К примеру, рассмотрим кардиологическую помощь. В этой сфере внедрен и эффективно применяется ряд новых техник и технологий. Так, в последние годы в ряде лечебных учреждений организованы отделения рентгеноэндоваскулярной хирургии, они оснащены современным ангиографическим оборудованием, благодаря чему успешно проводятся сложные хирургические операции.

Мы можем по праву гордиться научными изысканиями наших ученых, которые одними из первых в Центральной Азии наладили в Республиканским специализированным центре кардиологии использование высокотехнологичных методик – радиочастотной аблации (РЧА) при сложных аритмиях сердца и электрокардиостимуляции (ЭКС) при блокадах сердца. Метод радиочастотной аблации является высокотехнологичным, отвечающим международным стандартам средством лечения в кардиологии. То, с каким успехом и мастерством эти сложные методики лечения были освоены нашими, узбекистанскими кардиохирургами, имеет историческое значение для всей системы здравоохранения.

В нашей стране вот уже многие годы проводится эффективная работа с тем, чтобы выдвинутая Первым Президентом Узбекистана чрезвычайно важная инициатива, получившая широкое признание на международном уровне, а именно – концепция “Здоровая мать – здоровый ребенок” – нашла свое реальное воплощение. Так, в нашей стране создана глубоко продуманная система скрининговых и перинатальных услуг, что можно назвать очередным большим успехом национальной медицины. Судьба нации, будущее страны неразрывно связаны с вопросом воспитания здорового поколения. Поэтому мы глубоко осознаем, насколько важна для нас реализация концепции “Здоровая мать – здоровый ребенок”. Однако, воспитание здорового и гармонично развитого поколения – долгий и непрекращающийся процесс. Его успех требует последовательных реформ, системного подхода. Принимаемые сегодня широкомасштабные меры в сфере охраны материнства и детства значимы тем, что нацелены на укрепление репродуктивного здоровья, формирование здоровой семьи, предотвращение наследственных заболеваний, и, в конечном итоге, оздоровление генофонда нации и воспитание гармонично развитого поколения. В результате медицинских реформ в этом направлении Узбекистан в полной мере достиг Целей развития тысячелетия Организации Объединенных Наций.

Современную медицину невозможно представить без экстренной медицинской помощи. Сегодня в этой сфере действует система оказания населению оперативных и качественных медицинских услуг. В соответствии с самыми высокими критериями и требованиями сформирована новая система службы скорой помощи при областных специализированных клиниках, их районных и городских филиалах. Самое важное, уделяется особое внимание внедрению новейших медицинских технологий во всех звеньях системы здравоохранения. В результате применения на практике высокотехнологичных методов диагностики и лечения появилась возможность лечить тяжелые заболевания малоинвазивным способом, который минимизирует риск осложнений и предотвращает инвалидность.

Осуществленные за минувшие годы системные реформы дают свои результаты. Об этом свидетельствует все более растущие показатели здоровья наших людей. Так, смертность матерей снизилась в 3,2 раза, смертность детей – в 3,4 раза, средняя продолжительность жизни увеличилась с 66 до 73,5 лет, а среди женщин – до 76 лет. До конца 2016 года население нашей страны достигнет 32 миллионов человек, то есть в годы независимость прирост населения составил целых 12 миллионов человек, что является ярким подтверждением растущего уровня жизни и благополучия в нашей стране.

Все мы хорошо понимаем, что достигнутые огромные успехи и результаты – лишь часть того, к чему мы стремимся. Перед нами стоит множество задач по дальнейшему реформированию системы здравоохранения.

В целях кардинального улучшения качества медицинского обслуживания медицинско-профилактическая служба, как неотъемлемая часть сферы здравоохранения, превращается в современную систему, полностью отвечающую мировым стандартам. Как известно, это звено занимается важной работой по профилактике заболеваний среди населения и пропаганде здорового образа жизни. В этом направлении на местах действуют около трех тысяч сельских врачебных пунктов, семейные поликлиники, районные и городские центральные многопрофильные поликлиники.

Актуальные задачи стоят перед нами и в направлении ускоренного развития фармацевтической отрасли, поддержки отечественных производителей лекарств, обеспечении реализации в государственных аптечных сетях жизненно важных медикаментов по доступным ценам, исходя из запросов населения. Охват населения услугами патронажа и службы “103”, являющихся двумя ключевыми звеньями системы здравоохранения, несомненно, послужит важным фактором укрепления здоровья людей.

В нынешних условиях глобализации только считанные страны в мире способны достичь больших успехов в медицине, внедрить передовые технологии, и, в конечном итоге, обеспечить укрепление здоровья населения. Поэтому свою актуальность сохраняют вопросы дальнейшего улучшения специализированных медицинских центров и обеспечения доступности их услуг для жителей самых отдаленных районов страны, кардинального совершенствования деятельности районных медицинских объединений.

В основе предпринимаемых в нашей стране усилий по охране здоровья населения лежит самоотверженный труд работников системы и их преданность своему почетному делу. Сегодня во имя здоровья населения трудятся 72 653 квалифицированных врача, более 321 тысячи средних медицинских работников. Благодаря их работе, круглосуточной службе на страже здоровья врачебная профессия снискала высокий авторитет в обществе, доверие и уважение людей. В свою очередь, медицинские работники неустанно работают над собой, повышают опыт и мастерство в соответствии с велением времени. В годы независимости забота о работниках системы здравоохранения возведена в ранг государственной политики. В соответствии с принятым по инициативе Первого Президента нашей страны Законом “Об установлении Дня медицинских работников Республики Узбекистан” от 12 сентября 2006 года, ежегодно второе воскресенье ноября отмечается в нашей стране как День медицинских работников, что также является воплощением высокого уважения и почета, оказываемых в нашей стране труду врачей и медсестер.

РЕЗУЛЬТАТЫ СОЦИАЛЬНОГО ПАРТНЕРСТВА

В Законодательной палате Олий Мажлиса Республики Узбекистан состоялась беседа за “круглым столом”, посвященная актуальным задачам в сфере усиления социального партнерства государственных органов с негосударственными некоммерческими организациями и другими институтами гражданского общества.

В мероприятии, организованном Комитетом Законодательной палаты Олий Мажлиса Республики Узбекистан по демократическим институтам, негосударственным организациям и органам самоуправления граждан, а также Общественным фондом по поддержке негосударственных некоммерческих организаций и других институтов гражданского общества при Олий Мажлисе Республики Узбекистан, приняли участие депутаты, представители соответствующих государственных и общественных организаций, средств массовой информации.

Внедрены в жизнь масштабные проекты по повышению медицинской культуры в семьях, укреплению здоровья матерей и детей, расширению участия молодежи в обществе, женщин в государственном и общественном управлении.

В ходе беседы за “круглым столом” были обсуждены актуальные вопросы, связанные с широкой пропагандой и популяризацией в обществе достигнутых успехов и опыта в этом направлении, дальнейшим совершенствованием правовой основы социального партнерства.

WHAT DO DOCTORS TALK ABOUT?

The majority of medical conferences of the most different significance traditionally fall on autumn. This autumn is not an exception. Last week alone the country hosted about 20 scientific-practical medical conferences and enlightenment meetings of doctors with the population, and every one of them was noted for discussion of burning aspect of health protection. 

One of the main topics was the International Day of struggle against diabetes. Within the framework of this date the regions organize meetings, “round tables” and medical checks up, devoted to foundations of healthy lifestyles.

“The World Day of struggle against diabetes was initiated by the International Diabetes Association and the World Health Organization on the 14th of November 1991 and this date has turned into a traditional event,” says deputy Chief Doctor of the Samarkand Endocrinology dispensary Elena Bibikova. “Numerous events are conducted in our country in connection with this date. A month of struggle against diabetes is held in November at the decision of the Ministry of Healthcare. This serves the cause of further intensification of preventive work in this direction, raising the level of medical culture and awareness of the population, and the efficiency of diagnostics and treatment of this disease.”

Another major international event, which gave an impetus for discussions, was the World Week of the correct use of antibiotics. Resistance to antibiotics develops as a result of mutation of bacteria, whereby they acquire resistance to antibiotics, which are then used for the treatment of infections caused by them, the experts underline. This puts under threat our ability to treat infectious diseases and negates many achievements in the field of medicine. The Ministry of Healthcare of Uzbekistan emphasizes that resistance to antibiotics is one of the most serious threats facing us today. To avoid this, we promote simple rules among healthcare workers, men in the street and among farmers.

Many conferences for narrow profile specialists are held these days in this country. For example, in Urgench the oncologists discuss new approaches in diagnosing and treatment of tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. Reports on relevant topics were delivered not only by well-known experts but also by young doctors from different regions of the country.

Another event – a scientific-practical conference held in Tashkent – was dedicated to the topical issues of timely diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases. Deputy Minister Laziz Tuychiyev stressed that an important role in rendering assistance to patients suffering from these diseases belong to the improvement of rural medical centers and family health centers, emergency and specialized medical services, as well as specialized medical centers. It is worthwhile noting that as a result of a breakthrough in expanding the capacity of angiography service in recent years, has significantly improved the quality of prevention and treatment of strokes and other neurological diseases associated with disorders of the blood circulatory system.           “We have witnessed great transformations in the country’s healthcare system,” says Chairman of the St. Petersburg Association of rehabilitation doctors, Master of Medical Science, professor, and participant of the conference of neurologists Vitaliy Kovalchuk. “The country has been developing the field of medical rehabilitation. All conditions have been created here for the practical application of the achievements of the world medicine.”

But the most important indicators are linked with the growing quality of the population’s health, which confirms the efficiency of conducted reforms. And life expectancy of Uzbekistanis has increased by 5.5 years on the average during the years of the country’s independence.


 

IN THE RAIN AND IN THE SNOW

The weather in Uzbekistan changed dramatically on Monday; it became much colder, and we had the first snow, which in fact, however, had no major impact on the quality of social institutions’ work. Classes are conducted on schedule at educational establishments, and medical procedures are carried out at medical establishments – as prescribed by doctors.

This is the result of implementation of the Resolution of June 10, 2016, issued by the President of Uzbekistan “On measures for ensuring all-round preparation of the branches of economy and the social sphere of the Republic to sustainable operation during the autumn-winter period of 2016-2017” in the country. Special attention is being attached to timely and quality implementation of outlined measures on heating the educational and medical establishments, the Ministry of Public education commented. Routine repair works have been carried out at 1,632 schools and kindergartens and 378 boilers have been overhauled.

Replacement of 4.5 thousand heating boilers at 1,3 thousand educational institutions has been planned in 2016 in compliance with the Decree of the President of the Republic “On the program of measures to reduce the power consumption and introduction of power saving technologies in the branches of economy and social sphere for 2015-2019”. Among them more than 4 thousand have already been installed so far at 1,246 establishments.

Relevant activities are being carried out also by the Ministry of Healthcare. Thus, in the process of preparation for the autumn-winter heating season 500 meters of heating and 520 meters of water supplies systems have been overhauled in Bukhara region. And running repair works have been completed on more than 5 kilometers-long heating system, more than four water supply systems, 86 gas distribution boilers, 165 boiler houses; and 30 modern resource-saving boilers have been procured. More than eight thousand energy-efficient LED light bulbs, as well as 160 pieces of modern electric and gas equipment have been installed to reduce the volume of power consumption at medical establishments of the region.

“Activities on the complex preparation for the cold weather are being carried out in each of 400 medical-preventive establishments,” says deputy head of the Bukhara regional directorate of healthcare Akmal Boboqulov. “Major overhaul and current repair of hospital buildings, the systems of hot and cold water supplies and repair of the roofs have been completed within the framework of a special program. Measures have been undertaken on providing medical establishments with coal and coal briquettes. 856 tons of essential products have already been delivered to their destinations. All these activities will ensure stable functioning of hospitals.”


 

CANCER BACKS AWAY: DOCTORS MASTER ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES

The first surgery operations for the treatment of lymphoma with the help of stem cells have been carried out in Uzbekistan. They were held at the Center of the Research Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion for the treatment of patients with the hematopoietic stem cells.

The Center was set up on the basis of an order issued by the Ministry of Healthcare in 2014 within the framework of the Annual State Investment Programs with the support of the Turkish Cooperation and Development Agency (TCDA) and other international institutions. The Center in itself is a section for five cots for the treatment of patients with hematopoietic stem cells and is fitted out with modern equipment. The entire personnel of the Center had undergone internships and trainings in Russia, Turkey, Czech Republic and Germany.

The first patients of the Center included myeloma patients. The list of diseases that have been treated this year within its walls has expanded. Now patients with malignant lymphomas can receive qualified help here. Three persons have already received such treatment at the Center.

However, a number of pressing challenges await their solution on the way of broader implementation of this technology. Stem cell transplant remains the only chance to save some patients suffering from severe forms of this disease and not treatable by other methods. Conditions for carrying out new operations are available at the Research Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion, while patients with this pathology in Uzbekistan get treated at the Oncology dispensaries and the National Cancer Center, which create certain artificial barriers to patients for getting necessary assistance.

To resolve these issues researchers of the Republican Scientific Oncology Center jointly with their colleagues from the Scientific-Research Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion initiated a joint project, which is planned to be realized within the framework of the State scientific-technical programs.

This technology is expected to find its wide application in the course of the project implementation, while the results of this work will determine the expediency of organizational solutions. There is high probability of introduction of advanced global experience, in compliance with which such patients get treatment with hematologists. However, the doctors agree that national healthcare system should advance towards this solution step by step.

In the meantime, it should be kept in mind that the selection of patients for the treatment with hematopoietic stem cells is conducted by selecting them by age (not older than 65) and the condition of their internal organs (absence of infectious, severe cardiovascular, pulmonary and renal hepatic diseases). Benefits for hospitalization are awarded to those patients who have not previously received treatment of these types of diseases. Preparatory chemotherapy course is conducted at the center itself. The issue of the use of stem cell therapy is addressed after achieving a disease remission.


 

PROCEDURE OF VITAL NECESSITY

In accordance with the national program “The Year of Healthy Mother and Child” large-scale preventive activities against infectious diseases have been launched in the country – to provide not less than 98% of children’s immunization and cover about 5 million children of preschool and school age with de-helminthization program in compliance with the National immunization schedule.

“Immunization is one of the most successful and efficient measures for preservation of people’s lives and health, especially those of the younger generation,” noted deputy director of the Sanitary-Epidemiological monitoring directorate of the Ministry of Healthcare Dilorom Tursunova. “It provides an opportunity to annually prevent up to 3 million deaths worldwide from such controllable infectious diseases as measles, pneumonia, diarrhea, diphtheria and others. Vaccination against such diseases in our country is carried out according to the National calendar of preventive vaccination, which is being continuously improved.”

Generally speaking, today immunization is carried out against 12 diseases: diphtheria, polio, measles, rubella, mumps, Hib infection, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B, tuberculosis, rotavirus and pneumococcal infections with modern drugs that meet the requirements of the World Health Organization (WHO). Vaccination coverage currently makes up 95-99%. Despite the rising cost of drugs, the state pays greater attention to sustainable financing of immunization programs. Thus, this year alone 2,143 thousand children aged 9-12, as well as 125,1 thousand college, high school and university students have been vaccinated against hepatitis B.

It is noteworthy that the national immunization calendar has been expanded on a regular basis over the recent years. Vaccination against rotavirus infection was included into the calendar since June 2014. As a result, there has been a reduction of its incidence by 30% among children under the age of five, according to the Institute of Virology.

A new National calendar on the preventive vaccination was approved one year ago by the State Chief Sanitary Doctor, which includes vaccination against anti-pneumococcal infection. More than half of affected children suffer from pneumococcus, Uzbek scientists claim. This infection causes pneumonia, sepsis, otitis, sinusitis and meningitis. Costly antibiotics may be required for the treatment of these ailments, but many strains have become resistant to them in recent years. Immunization may turn into the most effective way to solve the problem. The introduction of pneumococcal vaccines will reduce by 50% the incidence of such infections among children under the age of five or more with consideration of foreign countries’ experiences.

“Strict control of birth records and provision of preventive vaccinations, covering as many children as possible, has been carried out within the framework of implementation of the State program “The Year of Healthy Mother and Child”, Dilorom Tursunova underlined. “In addition to that, our staff members are working with the population to identify unvaccinated children, and also monitor compliance with the rules of safe vaccination.”

Thanks to carrying out mass campaigns against infectious diseases since 1996 in Uzbekistan, there have been no recorded cases of diphtheria and neonatal tetanus since 2002, and no cases of measles, rubella, and hepatitis B in children up to the age of 14 since 2012.

Conducting the next de-worming session of children has aroused lively discussion in social networks. The Uzbekistan Today journalists asked for details the sanitary-epidemiological monitoring directorate of the Ministry of Healthcare.

The basis of another complex of measures is prevention on de-helminthization, approved by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers “On measures on the prevention and treatment of helminthes infections in children in the Republic of Uzbekistan for the years 2015-2018”.

Kids from the age of two up to the age of ten are vaccinated against this disease within the frame of the Week of Healthy Baby; this event covered 4,295 thousand boys and girls. Apart from that the necessary quantity of anti-helminthes preparations has already been prepared for 2017.

Dilorom Tursunova stressed that a large-scale work had been carried out on training specialists prior to commencement of this event. The seminars were devoted to urgent issues of prevention of parasite diseases and improvement of sanitary-hygienic conditions at children’s pre-schools and general educational institutions of the Republic. Practical trainings were also organized for physicians on laboratory diagnosis of helminthes, including in accordance with the methods recommended by the WHO. In addition to that, Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) organized a training program in South Korea on modern approaches to identification of relevant organisms for specialists of parasitological departments of the Center under the State Sanitary-Epidemiological monitoring and from four pilot regions of Uzbekistan.

At the same time, this complex of preventive undertakings makes a foundation of the situation, when medical statisticians continue to register reduction in the child morbidity rate.


 

Улучшая качество жизни

Одной из приоритетных задач Государственной программы “Год здоровой матери и ребенка” является дальнейшее укрепление института семьи, а также создание всех необходимых условий для охраны материнства и детства. С этой целью в стране проведены масштабные работы по улучшению качества медицинского обслуживания.

По данным Главного управления здравоохранения города Ташкента, в столице в этом году построены, капитально отремонтированы и рекон­струированы 12 медицинских учреждений, на что выделено более 40,8 миллиарда сумов (курс ЦБ РУ на 25.11.2016, 1$= 3157.50 сум).

Одно из недавних важных событий – открытие преображенной городской клинической больницы N№ 4 в Яшнабадском районе. В соответствии с Инвестиционной программой Республики Узбекистан на ремонт учреждения выделено 27 миллиардов сумов. Клиника оказывает медицинскую помощь сразу пяти столичным районам. Здесь функционируют такие отделения, как детское, реабилитационное, терапевтическое, неврологии, кардиологии, травматологии, педиатрии, гинекологии, патологии новорожденных и другие. Все они полностью оснащены современным диагностическим оборудованием: мультиспиральным компьютерным томографом, рентгеном, приборами для физиотерапии и лапароскопии – всего 35 видов. Пять основных зданий учреждения рассчитаны на 379 коек, 90 из которых – детские.

Здесь также расположены специальные кафедры Ташкентского педиатрического медицинского института, Ташкентской медицинской академии и других профильных центров. Все это не только улучшает научно-практическую работу, но и способствует внедрению новых методов диагностики и лечения исходя из мирового опыта.

В рамках Госпрограммы-2016 в столице также проводились “Недели детского здоровья”. В течение одной из таких более 270 тысяч ребят в возрасте от двух до десяти лет обеспечены антигельминтным лекарственным препаратом. Помимо этого, около 170 тысячам малышей от шести месяцев до пяти лет проведена саплементация витамина А. 80 тысяч детей в возрасте до двух лет вакцинированы от таких заболеваний, как полиомиелит, туберкулез и вирусный гепатит В. Для улучшения качества дальнейшей жизни, а также профилактики послеродовых заболеваний в течение только этого года 34 тысячам новорожденных введен витамин К.

Чтобы улучшить здоровье молодого поколения, особенно будущих мам, с января по октябрь проведено углубленное обследование около полумиллиона ребят в возрасте до 18 лет. Среди них из 160 тысяч, у которых выявлены заболевания, 153 тысячи уже прошли терапию. Помимо этого, разработан проект создания Центра здоровья женщин, целью которого является поддержка репродуктивного здоровья прекрасной половины человечества, а также профилактика различных недугов.

В рамках совместного проекта Международного неправительственного благотворительного фонда “Сог­лом авлод учун” и международной организации “Фриденсдорф интернешнл” в Германию на лечение отправлены двое ребят из Ташкента. Оттуда в этом году вернулись четверо детей, уже получивших лечение, шестерым провели операции в республике и еще один выздоровевший ребенок возвратился из Индии.

Большое внимание уделяется Горздравом пропаганде активного образа жизни, профилактике различных недугов и ранних браков. Изданы и распространены среди населения более 13 тысяч буклетов, 600 флаеров, создано около 60 видеороликов на эти темы.

Активная работа по предупреждению заболеваний матерей и детей, улучшению качества медицинского обслуживания продолжается. Государственные учреждения, а также специализированные организации и центры ставят перед собой важные задачи по сохранению и укреплению здоровья населения страны и успешно идут к их выполнению.

 POTENTIAL FOR LIFE

The obstetric institutions of the country have been introducing the perinatal audit technologies – analysis of each case, which will help identify missed opportunities.

These technologies have been widely discussed at the conference organized by the Ministry of Healthcare of Uzbekistan jointly with the European regional bureau of the World Health Organization. Taking part in the discussions along with domestic specialists were experts from Latvia, Moldova, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan.

“The level of maternal mortality rate has been reduced 3,2 and that of child mortality – 3,4 times over in recent 25 years. This is the result of a large-scale work conducted on the improvement of quality of medical assistance,” stressed deputy Minister of Healthcare Asilbek Khudoyorov. “All maternity hospitals of the country have been modernized and fitted out with modern equipment. A network of perinatal centers has been set up for rendering assistance to women with pregnancy complications. Great attention is paid to introduction of advanced technologies, specifically, perinatal surgery has been developing at accelerated rates, i.e. this country began to operate infants who wouldn’t be able to survive without surgery.”

At the same time the healthcare establishments still possess a huge potential for the further improvement of medical assistance quality, the experts noted.

The introduction of perinatal audit technologies will enable to accurately and more precisely outline the bоttlenecks and elaborate the efficient strategy for their solution.


 

 REGIONAL TEENAGE DISPENSARIES ARE TRANSFERRED TO THE STRUCTURE OF REGIONAL MULTIDISCIPLINARY MEDICAL CENTERS

Regional teenage dispensaries are transferred to the structure of regional multidisciplinary medical centers in our country.

The network of provincial teenage dispensaries (one in each province) was set up about ten years ago for rendering services on medical checkup and examination of teen-agers of pre-conscription age and recruits. However, the experience of these establishments’ activities proved to be inefficient. Due to their weak material and technical base diagnosis and treatment were always carried out in conjunction with other medical institutions, primarily with the regional multidisciplinary centers. A decision on restructuring was passed in this connection with their inclusion into the composition of regional multidisciplinary medical centers in the quality of their structural subdivisions.

These transformations will promote also the efficient utilization of budget resources and consolidation of their personnel potential.


 

 HEALTHCARE TO BE REVAMPED

Fr om 2011 to 2015, the number of hospital beds in Uzbekistan decreased from 139,800 to 129,800. New reductions will continue until 2020. True, this will be related solely to anti-tuberculosis service. Will there be enough hospital beds for all those in need of them?

The situation was clarified at the Chair of Organization, Economics and Administration of Healthcare of the Tashkent Institute of qualification improvement of physicians.

It turned out that this tendency was laid down into the State program 18 years ago. Already then had been clearly specified the major transformations to be carried out in the sphere of medical services to the population of the country.

They were prioritized in the following order: primary medical-sanitary health care, protection of maternal and child health, emergency medical aid, specialized medical assistance, sanitary-epidemiological welfare of the population, provision of medicines and so on.

The modernized healthcare system of the country gives priority to the outpatient rather than inpatient service as was the case in the past. A true vector of this concept had been recognized very soon, first of all, by industrially advanced states and they took to implementing it in their respective countries.

The course of these transformations and their initial results are being actively analyzed in many countries of the world. The majority of experts admit the positive impact of reduction of the number of hospital beds on the development of healthcare system in general. Time, however, has not come so far for categorical statements; the long-term results of these transformations will have to be seen yet.

What hospital beds are subject to reduction, and what will replace them? Head of Chair “Organization, Economics and Healthcare administration” Damin Asadov helped us clarify the issue.

“Specialists consider that time has come today to introduce a thorough control over the justification of the need to hospitalize a patient. Patients who may be treated on an outpatient basis should not be sent to hospitals.  Undertreated patients should not be also discharged from a hospital or high turnover of hospital beds should not be achieved on account of hospital overload work by sacrificing sanitary-hygienic conditions. There are always patients who may well be treated efficiently outside the hospitals. It has been established that in such areas as “therapy”, “nursing the elderly patients”, as well as a number of other specialities the proportion of unjustified cases of admissions for inpatient treatment makes up more than 20-27%, while the share of patients for whom hospital treatment is no longer useful after a certain period is equal to14.6% for all specialities, except psychiatry and obstetrics.

This indicator exceeds 60% for patients getting treated at therapeutic departments and sections nursing the elderly patients at general type municipal hospitals.

The results of some scientific research provide evidence that 20-30% of patients getting treated at inpatient hospitals may receive more effective and cheaper medical assistance at day care centers and at their homes.

Let us refer to upcoming reductions, which are planned to be carried out up to the year 2020. Why are they related to anti-tuberculosis service? Optimization of the network of establishments has been continued in this area with simultaneous elimination of low-capacity and expansion of modern well-equipped hospitals. At the same time, the Ministry of Healthcare keeps introducing modern methods of treatment at the recommendations of the World Health Organization, which enable certain group of patients to get safe treatment in outpatient conditions at home. Thus, the need in 1450 hospital beds will drop out after the realization of these projects, and their number will be gradually reduced, according to specialists.

Experts also pay attention to the fact that it has been becoming more and more evident in recent years that the systems providing a patient the opportunity to immediately take a specialist advise after the initial appeal (France, Germany, Sweden, USA) shows the tendency towards higher costs compared with that wh ere there is a link between a patient and specialist doctor in the person of a general practitioner (Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, UK).

Resources saved on account of reducing the inefficiently used hospital cots in Uzbekistan are channeled to the development of the system of general practitioners and introduction of modern high technological methods of diagnostics and treatment at medical establishments, which enable to reduce time required for recovery of patients.”


 AND NEW CLINICS WILL SPRING UP

The Ministry of Health is working on setting up new clinics aimed at the improvement of medical assistance to families and children.

The municipalities plan, in the first place, to expand the network of family out-patient hospitals. There are 260 establishments of this type operating currently in the country; all of them have been set up on the basis of former municipal polyclinics. The activities of these new type establishments are built up on the general practitioners’ principles when the population residing within a fixed territory is serviced by a general practitioner and his/her patronage nurses.

Large-scale work on the prevention and early detection of diseases rests on the family out-patient hospitals. Monthly health improvement weeks have been conducted to this end in recent years.  Much attention is paid to protection of maternal and child health and promotion of healthy lifestyles among the population.

Practice has it that many family polyclinics are overloaded. Therefore, new medical facilities will be established in the cities and towns, where the contingent of the serviced population exceeds 30,000 citizens.

It has also been planned to set up one children’s dental polyclinic in each region of the country for the purpose of improving the quality of services for children. Children need special clinics not only because of the special qualifications of dentists, but also for providing free assistance guaranteed by the state. Today dental services are in fact provided primarily by private clinics while the government clinics shift to fully self-financing operation mode.

Concrete proposals on setting up new out-patient hospitals will be elaborated by a special working group in the third quarter of 2017. The final decision on the establishment of new clinics will be taken by the country’s Cabinet of Ministers.


 

 Medical workers’ holiday

Medical workers’ holiday In accordance with a law adopted on 12 September 2006 at the initiative of the country’s First President Islam Karimov “On establishing Medical Workers’ Day in the Republic of Uzbekistan”, Medical Workers’ Day is widely celebrated in this country on the second Sunday of November every year.

An event has been held on this occasion at the Uzbek National Academic Drama Theatre. It was attended by members of the Senate, deputies of the Legislative Chamber of Oliy Majlis (parliament) of the Republic of Uzbekistan, representatives of state, public and international organizations, scientists, doctors and journalists.

The minister of health of the Republic of Uzbekistan, A.Alimov; the chairperson of the Council of the Trade Unions Federation, T.Norboyeva; and others have said that consistent reforms in the system of health care are giving weighty results in the protection of people’s interests and in the ensuring of the population’s healthy and long lives.

As a result of the implementation of tasks specified in the Maternal and Child Health programme, a maternal and child screening service has been introduced, and a network of perinatal establishments has been created. Special centres for strengthening people’s reproductive health have been established. A unique system for the provision of emergency medical aid has been created. Today the republican scientific centre for emergency medical aid, its territorial branches, town and district departments, local emergency medical aid stations and the air medical service are providing the population with medical services at the level of international standards.

The system providing specialized medical aid is developing. Today there are specialized scientific-practical centres of cardiology, surgery, eye microsurgery, urology, therapy and medical rehabilitation, endocrinology, phthisiology and pulmonology, obstetrics and gynaecology, dermatology and venereology and paediatrics. Nearly 50 thousand high-technology complex operations are performed at these medical establishments every year.

A modern medical prophylactic service, which has been formed in this country, is an integral part of its health care sphere. Currently, medical services are being provided in this area at nearly three thousand rural medical stations, family polyclinics and outpatient care establishments as well as district and town central multi-functional polyclinics.

Within the framework of the Year of Maternal and Child Health state programme, the scale of work on strengthening the material and technical bases of medical establishments is widening.

In the process of medico-social reforms being conducted in society, special attention is paid to comprehensively supporting and encouraging the work of representatives of this honourable and responsible profession – doctors and nurses working selflessly in the area of health care for people.

The Ministry of Health of the Republic of Uzbekistan is implementing projects to upgrade the professionalism of medical workers and to popularize advanced experience in this sphere. Specifically these are contests conducted among medical establishments, specialized hospitals, disease control centres, doctors and nurses.

During the event, the names of the winners of these contests were announced. The medical association of the town of Yangiyer, Sirdaryo Region, is the winner in “the best establishment for the protection of motherhood and childhood” nomination.

“At our medical establishment, there are all the necessary conditions for fast and precise diagnostics,” says Shahlo Mamajonova, chief of the child health department of the medical association of the town of Yangiyer.

The winners and runners-up were given valuable presents.

E.Basitkhanova, deputy prime minister of the Republic of Uzbekistan and chairperson of the republican women’s committee, made a speech at the event.


 

 Food’s Good

“Hygienic requirements for organization of nutrition of sports schools students” sanitary rules and norms have been introduced for the first time in Uzbekistan.

The documents had been elaborated pursuant to the minutes of the meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Fund for the Development of Children’s Sports in Uzbekistan and the Complex of Measures on securing healthy nutrition of the republic’s population for 2015-2020, according to the Ministry of Healthcare.

“Elaboration and approval of the rules are the response to dynamic development of children’s sports, construction of new children’s sporting facilities and the growing number of children regularly going in for sports,” commented deputy director, head of laboratory of adolescents and children under the Scientific-Research Institute of Sanitary, Hygiene and Professional Diseases, Roza Komilova. “Compliance with these rules means to take care about children’s health, because the intensification of training sessions, the method of early specialization without consideration of anatomical and physiological peculiarities, physical fitness and physical development of a child often leads to injuries and diseases of a young athlete.”

“To ensure a normal course of the training process a child should get sufficient quantity of vitamins, microelements and other nutrients along with food,” the specialist noted. “To ensure compliance with the norm the regulation provides an approximate menu for a week, as well as the methods and rules of monitoring the quality of food.”

The sanitary rules are binding for educational sports institutions and educational establishments with sport clubs (sport sections and hobby clubs) for training students.


 

 Pharmacies No Longer Be Able to Overprice Drugs

The Acting President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev has signed a Resolution ‘On measures on further improvement of public provision of medicines and medical products.’

From January 1, 2017 wholesale and retail sale of medicines and medical products both imported and of domestic producers, will be carried out with the use of marginal trade allowances determined regardless of the number of intermediaries involved in deliveries to wholesale sales – in the amount of not more than 15% of the purchase price; retail sales – not more than 20% of the wholesale price.

In addition, from January 1, fixed prices are set for 167 items of socially important medicines and 22 items of medical products, the most widely used in medical practice.

The prices will be determined on a quarterly basis by the Republican Commission for Control over Provision of Health Institutions and Population with Medicines and Medical Products on the basis of analysis of the situation in world prices for medicines and medical products in accordance with the approved procedure.

The Resolution defines the tasks to develop, in accordance with international practice, diagnosis and treatment standards and clinical protocols for major diseases. It is necessary for rational prescribing, with bringing diagnosis and treatment standards and clinical protocols to all health institutions, including through information system with public access, as well as strict control of their observance.

In two months it will be developed a draft regulation on the procedure for prescribing by physicians and sale of medicines by pharmacies, which will provide stricter punishment for those who have committed a violation of this order.

The resolution also provides for approval of an updated minimum list of medicines and medical products, mandatory for all pharmacies, and the list of medicinal products sold without a prescription.

The license of the pharmacies will be terminated in case of flagrant violation of the order of the pricing of medicines and medical products.


 

 Uzbek Health Ministry Develops the Rules of Nutrition of Children Involved in Sports

Uzbekistan for the first time has introduced the sanitary rules and hygienic standards ‘Hygienic requirements for the nutrition of children in sports schools.’

The Ministry of Health officials say that the document was developed in response to the protocol of the meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Fund for Development of Children’s Sports of Uzbekistan and the Set of measures to provide healthy nutrition of the population of Uzbekistan in 2015-2020.

“Development and approval of these rules is a response to the dynamic development of children’s sports, construction of new children’s sports facilities, increasing the number of children involved in sports on a regular basis,” says the Deputy Director, Head of the Laboratory of Hygiene of Children and Adolescents of the Research Institute of Hygiene, Sanitation and Occupational Diseases, Roza Kamilova. “Compliance with these rules is the care for the health of children, as the intensification of training sessions, the method of early specialization, often without taking into account the anatomical and physiological characteristics, physical fitness and physical development of the child, could lead to injuries and diseases of the young athlete.”

She says that to ensure the normal training process of the child, he or she should receive with the food necessary amount of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

Sanitary rules are binding on educational institutions engaged in sports and educational institutions with sports clubs.

Inobservance of sanitary rules, norms and hygienic standards entails disciplinary and administrative responsibility in accordance with the legislation of the Republic of Uzbekistan.


 

Ministry of Health to Help Families to Care for Children with Disabilities

Previously, parents raising children with disabilities had two ways: to take after them independently, to send them to Muruvvat Nursing Houses for children with disabilities. Now it turns possible to use the services of day care groups.

Relevant groups in Muruvvat Nursing Homes will be created in accordance with the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers of Uzbekistan.

These groups will be available for the disabled children with severe or significant severe mental disorders.

These services will be demanded by the families willing to raise their disabled children independently. These groups will help parents to solve many urgent issues on improving the level of family life and their social adaptation in society.


 Private Clinics Get Empowered

 

The Ministry of Health involves private clinics in the public provision of a wider range of high-tech surgical procedures using minimally invasive methods of treatment as well as treatment and prevention of a wide range of diseases.

 

Experts point out that “Since 2012 the number of private healthcare organizations increased from 2.2 to 3.3 thousand, while the volume of services provided by private healthcare organizations increased from 30.6 billion soums to 218.8 billion soums, or by 7.1 times. Within this period the number of medical institutions increased equipped with high-tech medical equipment, including those using magnetic resonance, computed tomography, from 21 to 71, and those having an ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus from 382 to 981. In the last five years, medical equipment was procured worth 166.8 billion soums, of which 36.7 billion soums of the funds released from the tax and customs privileges provided to private healthcare organizations.”

 

In short, the private sector has become a reliable partner of the state for the development of a modern high-tech medicine. For further development of this sector a draft Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan has been prepared ‘On measures for further development of the private health sector’, which is currently under discussion.

 

In particular, it is proposed to adopt the updated list of specialized medical activity, based on which licenses are issued to private medical organizations. This will allow to involve the private sector in the provision of public high-tech surgical procedures using minimally invasive methods of treatment, in the treatment and prevention of a wide range of diseases.

 

To this end, private medical institutions are offered to use the released funds from the payment of taxes and mandatory contributions, together with the equipment of medical organization with modern medical devices, for the procurement of components, spare parts and consumables for the medical equipment, medical devices, and for the construction, reconstruction and repair of buildings and facilities of the medical organization.

 

 

 

‘Healthy Lifestyle’ Service to Be Reorganized

 

The Ministry of Health of Uzbekistan is taking steps to optimize the network of medical institutions involved in the formation of a healthy lifestyle.

 

All 123 district (municipal) health centers that perform the function of cultivation of a healthy lifestyle in the population, raising the level of medical culture in families are included in the central multidisciplinary polyclinics of district and city medical associations at the place of location as a structural unit.

 

According to the representatives of the Ministry of Health, it will contribute to the approach of doctors promoting healthy lifestyle to the people. Erasing administrative facets simplify the study of the problems of a healthy lifestyle and will contribute to more active work with the population.

 

 

 

Doctors promoting healthy lifestyle will play an important role not only in improving the medical culture, but also collecting and analyzing the real state of healthcare system, which would be necessary for the performance of their parent institution.

 

 

However, as noted previously, in 2017 the Institute of Health and Medical Statistics will also face major changes. The Research Institute for study of issues on improving the system of healthcare organization, increasing the efficiency and quality of medical services, implementing the systematic monitoring and analysis of the health status of the population, the analysis of the development prospects of the healthcare industry will be established at its base.

It is planned to intensify the assistance provided by the organization around the clock medical supervision, based on the specifics of the served population. For this purpose it is projected to create additional 246 positions of physicians and 149 middle and junior medical staff.


 

ЗДОРОВОЕ НАСЕЛЕНИЕ – СИЛЬНАЯ СТРАНА

С первых лет независимости в нашей стране придается приоритетное значение вопросам укрепления здоровья народа, особенно охраны материнства и детства, воспитания физически здорового и духовно развитого поколения. Как отмечал Первый Президент нашей страны, только здоровый народ, здоровая нация способны на великие дела.

Уверенной поступью продвигаясь к этой благородной цели, мы становимся свидетелями того, как во всех сферах жизни нашего общества, в том числе в системе здравоохранения осуществляются масштабные реформы. Так, создана единая и слаженная система медицинского обслуживания населения, охватывающая все уровни здравоохранения от сельских врачебных пунктов, районных и городских медицинских объединений, областных многопрофильных медицинских центров, оказывающих первичную медико-санитарную помощь, до республиканских специализированных медицинских центров по оказанию высокотехнологичных медицинских услуг. Кроме того, в 10 республиканских специализированных центрах, организованных на базе научных медицинских школ, оказывается высококвалифицированная медицинская помощь по таким направлениям, как хирургия, урология, кардиология, глазная микрохирургия, акушерство и гинекология, педиатрия, терапия и медицинская реабилитация, дерматология и венерология, фтизиатрия и пульмонология, эндокринология.

Прогресс не стоит на месте. С развитием технологий перед медицинской наукой ставятся все новые и новые цели. Отрадно, что научный потенциал, которым обладают специализированные научно-практические медицинские учреждения нашей страны, шагает в ногу со временем. В результате научных исследований отечественных ученых на актуальную тематику были разработаны более тысячи лечебно-диагностических стандартов по более чем двадцати направлениям медицины. Следует отметить, что реформы, нацеленные на развитие медицинской системы, расширяют доступ населения к качественной медицинской помощи. Почти все современные методики лечения, практикуемые в ведущих странах мира, сегодня с успехом применяются и в нашей стране, показатели здоровья населения не уступают аналогичным показателям в развитых странах. Самое важное, отпадает необходимость проходить лечение за рубежом. К примеру, рассмотрим кардиологическую помощь. В этой сфере внедрен и эффективно применяется ряд новых техник и технологий. Так, в последние годы в ряде лечебных учреждений организованы отделения рентгеноэндоваскулярной хирургии, они оснащены современным ангиографическим оборудованием, благодаря чему успешно проводятся сложные хирургические операции.

Мы можем по праву гордиться научными изысканиями наших ученых, которые одними из первых в Центральной Азии наладили в Республиканским специализированным центре кардиологии использование высокотехнологичных методик – радиочастотной аблации (РЧА) при сложных аритмиях сердца и электрокардиостимуляции (ЭКС) при блокадах сердца. Метод радиочастотной аблации является высокотехнологичным, отвечающим международным стандартам средством лечения в кардиологии. То, с каким успехом и мастерством эти сложные методики лечения были освоены нашими, узбекистанскими кардиохирургами, имеет историческое значение для всей системы здравоохранения.

В нашей стране вот уже многие годы проводится эффективная работа с тем, чтобы выдвинутая Первым Президентом Узбекистана чрезвычайно важная инициатива, получившая широкое признание на международном уровне, а именно – концепция “Здоровая мать – здоровый ребенок” – нашла свое реальное воплощение. Так, в нашей стране создана глубоко продуманная система скрининговых и перинатальных услуг, что можно назвать очередным большим успехом национальной медицины. Судьба нации, будущее страны неразрывно связаны с вопросом воспитания здорового поколения. Поэтому мы глубоко осознаем, насколько важна для нас реализация концепции “Здоровая мать – здоровый ребенок”. Однако, воспитание здорового и гармонично развитого поколения – долгий и непрекращающийся процесс. Его успех требует последовательных реформ, системного подхода. Принимаемые сегодня широкомасштабные меры в сфере охраны материнства и детства значимы тем, что нацелены на укрепление репродуктивного здоровья, формирование здоровой семьи, предотвращение наследственных заболеваний, и, в конечном итоге, оздоровление генофонда нации и воспитание гармонично развитого поколения. В результате медицинских реформ в этом направлении Узбекистан в полной мере достиг Целей развития тысячелетия Организации Объединенных Наций.

Современную медицину невозможно представить без экстренной медицинской помощи. Сегодня в этой сфере действует система оказания населению оперативных и качественных медицинских услуг. В соответствии с самыми высокими критериями и требованиями сформирована новая система службы скорой помощи при областных специализированных клиниках, их районных и городских филиалах. Самое важное, уделяется особое внимание внедрению новейших медицинских технологий во всех звеньях системы здравоохранения. В результате применения на практике высокотехнологичных методов диагностики и лечения появилась возможность лечить тяжелые заболевания малоинвазивным способом, который минимизирует риск осложнений и предотвращает инвалидность.

Осуществленные за минувшие годы системные реформы дают свои результаты. Об этом свидетельствует все более растущие показатели здоровья наших людей. Так, смертность матерей снизилась в 3,2 раза, смертность детей – в 3,4 раза, средняя продолжительность жизни увеличилась с 66 до 73,5 лет, а среди женщин – до 76 лет. До конца 2016 года население нашей страны достигнет 32 миллионов человек, то есть в годы независимость прирост населения составил целых 12 миллионов человек, что является ярким подтверждением растущего уровня жизни и благополучия в нашей стране.

Все мы хорошо понимаем, что достигнутые огромные успехи и результаты – лишь часть того, к чему мы стремимся. Перед нами стоит множество задач по дальнейшему реформированию системы здравоохранения.

В целях кардинального улучшения качества медицинского обслуживания медицинско-профилактическая служба, как неотъемлемая часть сферы здравоохранения, превращается в современную систему, полностью отвечающую мировым стандартам. Как известно, это звено занимается важной работой по профилактике заболеваний среди населения и пропаганде здорового образа жизни. В этом направлении на местах действуют около трех тысяч сельских врачебных пунктов, семейные поликлиники, районные и городские центральные многопрофильные поликлиники.

Актуальные задачи стоят перед нами и в направлении ускоренного развития фармацевтической отрасли, поддержки отечественных производителей лекарств, обеспечении реализации в государственных аптечных сетях жизненно важных медикаментов по доступным ценам, исходя из запросов населения. Охват населения услугами патронажа и службы “103”, являющихся двумя ключевыми звеньями системы здравоохранения, несомненно, послужит важным фактором укрепления здоровья людей.

В нынешних условиях глобализации только считанные страны в мире способны достичь больших успехов в медицине, внедрить передовые технологии, и, в конечном итоге, обеспечить укрепление здоровья населения. Поэтому свою актуальность сохраняют вопросы дальнейшего улучшения специализированных медицинских центров и обеспечения доступности их услуг для жителей самых отдаленных районов страны, кардинального совершенствования деятельности районных медицинских объединений.

В основе предпринимаемых в нашей стране усилий по охране здоровья населения лежит самоотверженный труд работников системы и их преданность своему почетному делу. Сегодня во имя здоровья населения трудятся 72 653 квалифицированных врача, более 321 тысячи средних медицинских работников. Благодаря их работе, круглосуточной службе на страже здоровья врачебная профессия снискала высокий авторитет в обществе, доверие и уважение людей. В свою очередь, медицинские работники неустанно работают над собой, повышают опыт и мастерство в соответствии с велением времени. В годы независимости забота о работниках системы здравоохранения возведена в ранг государственной политики. В соответствии с принятым по инициативе Первого Президента нашей страны Законом “Об установлении Дня медицинских работников Республики Узбекистан” от 12 сентября 2006 года, ежегодно второе воскресенье ноября отмечается в нашей стране как День медицинских работников, что также является воплощением высокого уважения и почета, оказываемых в нашей стране труду врачей и медсестер.


 

 ПРОШЛА МЕЖДУНАРОДНАЯ КОНФЕРЕНЦИЯ ПО АКТУАЛЬНЫМ ВОПРОСАМ ЭНДОКРИНОЛОГИИ

В Ташкентском институте усовершенствования врачей состоялась международная научно-практическая конференция по актуальным вопросам эндокринологии. В мероприятии, организованном Министерством здравоохранения Узбекистана, Республиканским специализированным научно-практическим медицинским центром эндокринологии, Комитетом женщин Узбекистана и другими организациями, приняли участие ученые, врачи, молодые исследователи, представители государственных и общественных организаций, зарубежные специалисты.

Директор Республиканского специализированного научно-практического медицинского центра эндокринологии С.Исмоилов и другие особо отметили, что проведенная под руководством Первого Президента нашей страны Ислама Каримова системная работа по совершенствованию материально-технической базы медицинских учреждений и внедрению передовых достижений мировой медицины способствовала укреплению здоровья нашего народа.

В соответствии с постановлением Первого Президента Республики Узбекистан «О мерах по дальнейшему углублению реформирования системы здравоохранения» от 28 ноября 2011 года и Государственной программой «Год здоровой матери и ребенка» масштабы этой работы расширяются.

В нашей стране последовательно развиваются все направления медицины, в том числе эндокринология. Сегодня около 500 эндокринологических кабинетов в районных медицинских объединениях и областные диспансеры оказывают населению современную медицинскую помощь. Сельскими врачебными пунктами и семейными поликлиниками проводится работа по профилактике заболеваний и пропаганде здорового образа жизни.

Создание Республиканского специализированного научно-практического медицинского центра эндокринологии дало высокие результаты в совершенствовании медицинского обслуживания в соответствии с международными стандартами, расширении научной деятельности, внедрении современных методик диагностики и лечения.

Наши ученые, помимо освоения передовых методик мировой медицины, занимаются исследованиями по актуальным вопросам эндокринологии. В результате внедрены новые методы лечения заболеваний поджелудочной железы, опухолей гипофиза, диабета и других недугов.

Вместе с совершенствованием медицинского обслуживания в нашей стране проводится системная работа по утверждению принципов рационального питания, обогащению продуктов полезными элементами, йодированию соли.

Профилактика заболеваний эндокринной системы, как и в случае других болезней, зависит от уровня медицинской культуры и здорового образа жизни каждого человека. Государственными, общественными организациями совместно с медицинскими учреждениями проводится широкомасштабная разъяснительная работа. Примером тому служат мероприятия по профилактике сахарного диабета, проводимые Министерством здравоохранения и Комитетом женщин Узбекистана.

На конференции заслушаны доклады о важных результатах, достигаемых в эндокринологической науке и практике, новых подходах к профилактике, раннему выявлению и эффективному лечению сахарного диабета, современных направлениях лечения заболеваний эндокринной системы.


 

 ИНВЕСТИЦИИ В ЧЕЛОВЕЧЕСКИЙ КАПИТАЛ

Первый локализуемый препарат под торговым названием “Ваксигрип” – вакцина против гриппа – должен положить начало долгому и плодотворному сотрудничеству ГАК “Узфармсаноат” и “Sanofi”, которые при поддержке министерств здравоохранения и внеш­них связей, инвестиций и торговли Республики Узбекистан объявили на состоявшейся в столице пресс-конференции о начале реализации совместного проекта по локализации производства лекарственных средств в Республике.

Проект инициирован в рамках Меморандума о взаимопонимании, подписанного на шестом заседании Межправительственной комиссии по торгово-экономическому сотрудничеству между Республикой Узбекистан и Францией. По словам специалистов, вакцина против гриппа практически не имеет побочных эффектов и защищает организм человека от трех штаммов вируса, наиболее распространенных по данным ВОЗ на сегодняшний день. Эта вакцина против гриппа является первой волной препаратов, которые в дальнейшем планируется запустить в производство.

– Локализация лекарственных средств стала приоритетным направлением в нашей республике, – сказал руководитель аппарата ГАК “Узфармсаноат” Нозир Ибрагимов. – Изначально на организованном совместно с нашими коллегами из Франции ООО “Bio vaktsinalar” планировалось выпускать только вакцины. Но в дальнейшем мы хотим расширить сферу деятельности предприятия и включить в программу локализации и другие препараты против хронических заболеваний сердечно-сосудистой и эндокринной систем, а также желудочно-кишечного тракта. Для этого есть все возможности. Думаю, что наша продукция завоюет прочные позиции на фармацевтическом рынке республики. Население сможет приобретать лучшие европейские препараты по доступной цене. Это будет достигаться путем предоставления сущест­венных скидок со стороны производителя, обеспечения маркировки, этикеровки и хранения продукции посредством использования местных ресурсов.

Предприятие оборудовано по последнему слову медицинской техники, здесь имеется конт­рольно-измерительное и упаковочное оборудование, холодильные камеры, трудятся около 40 специалистов с высоким уровнем профессио­нальной подготовки. ООО прошло необходимый процесс сертификации и лицензирования, а также свой внутренний и со стороны компании “Sanofi” аудит системы контроля качества.

ЕГИПЕТСКИЕ СМИ О ПРИОРИТЕТНЫХ НАПРАВЛЕНИЯХ СОЦИАЛЬНОЙ ПОЛИТИКИ УЗБЕКИСТАНА

Сфера  здравоохранения в Узбекистане остается в числе приоритетных направлений государственной политики в социальной сфере. Широкомасштабные реформы в этой области создали необходимые условия для обеспечения здоровой и достойной жизни народа, воспитания физически и духовно здорового молодого поколения.

Об этом пишет в своей статье, опубликованной на страницах межарабского информационного портала Египта «Асия аль-Йоума» (Азия сегодня) и египетской социально-политической газеты «Тахия Миср» (Да здравствует Египет), заместитель главного редактора социально-политической газеты «Аль-Джарида аль-Мисрия» (Египетская газета) Абу Бакр Абулмагд.

В материале отмечается, что принятые соответствующие законы Республики Узбекистан, указы и постановления Президента страны, Кабинета Министров служат важным фактором развития сферы здравоохранения. В частности, указ руководителя страны «О государственной программе реформирования системы здравоохранения Республики Узбекистан» ознаменовал начало важного этапа в коренном реформировании отрасли.

Подчеркивается, что первый орден страны «Соглом авлод учун» («За здоровое поколение»), учрежденный 4 марта 1993 года, является своеобразным символом воплощения мечты о здоровом поколении, а также масштабной работы по формированию физически и духовно развитого молодого поколения.

В статье делается акцент на том, что забота о здоровье женщины – продолжательницы жизни, и детей – это забота о будущем нации. «Узбекский народ издревле с почтением относится к прекрасной половине человечества, являющейся хранительницей семьи, матерью и воспитателем гармонично развитых детей. В процессе осуществляемых в годы независимости реформ эти добрые традиции и обычаи обогатились новым содержанием. Укрепление в сознании людей идеи «Здоровая мать – здоровый ребенок», воспитание всесторонне развитого поколения в полном смысле слова превратились в общенациональное движение», – пишет автор.

В материале также отмечается, что духовно-нравственное воспитание гармоничного развития молодого поколения является неотъемлемой частью социальной политики, проводимой в Узбекистане. «Оно направлено на формирование у юношей и девушек чувства патриотизма, современного мировоззрения, приоритета в их сознании национальных и общечеловеческих ценностей, стремления быть полезным своей стране».

Египетский обозреватель подчеркивает, что в Узбекистане за годы независимости выросло разносторонне одаренное, высокообразованное и интеллектуально развитое поколение. «Осуществление столь масштабных задач возможна лишь в той стране, где устойчиво развивается экономика и где высшей ценностью является человек, его интересы», – резюмирует он.

«ЗДОРОВЬЕ МАТЕРИ И РЕБЕНКА – ВАЖНЕЙШИЙ ИНДИКАТОР УРОВНЯ СОЦИАЛЬНО-ЭКОНОМИЧЕСКОГО БЛАГОПОЛУЧИЯ СТРАНЫ»

Опыт Узбекистана в сфере укрепления репродуктивного здоровья населения, охраны здоровья материнства и детства активно изучается мировым сообществом.

Так, в статье, размещенном на веб-сайте Шанхайского университета международных исследований, отмечается, что здоровье матери и ребенка является важнейшим индикатором уровня социально-экономического благополучия страны. В этой связи в Узбекистане уделяется особое внимание сохранению и дальнейшему улучшению генофонда нации.

«При этом придается большое значение обеспечению широкого и равного доступа к качественным медицинским услугам, укреплению материально-технической базы медучреждений, повышению кадрового потенциала, внедрению современных методов диагностики, оказанию квалифицированной помощи матерям, детям и подросткам», – говорится в материале.

Сообщается, что за последние годы в медицинской службе республики выстроена вертикаль управления качеством лечебного процесса, созданы условия для дальнейшего внедрения методов диагностики и лечения, соответствующих рекомендациям международных организаций

Авторы публикации положительно отзываются о деятельности Республиканского специализированного научно-практического медицинского центра педиатрии и его областных подразделений, которые оснащены современным диагностическим и лечебным оборудованием. В практику внедрены самые передовые в мире технологии, что позволило поднять качество оказываемой в них специализированной медицинской помощи на высокий уровень.

Отдельно отмечаются успехи Узбекистана в деле  подготовки квалифицированных медицинских кадров, которая осуществляется сегодня на основе новых учебных планов и программ. Подчеркивается, что вся эта планомерная работа способствовала тому, что за годы независимости значительно снизились показатели материнской и младенческой смертности, укрепилось здоровье населения.

В статье особое внимание акцентировано на предпринимаемых мерах в рамках реализации Государственной программы «Год здоровой матери и ребенка». Сообщается, что по всей республике организованы регулярные углубленные медосмотры. Беременные женщины обеспечиваются поливитаминными комплексами. Проходят недели оздоровления женщин фертильного возраста, детей и девочек-подростков.

«Комитетом женщин Узбекистана на основе социального партнерства образованы постоянно действующие рабочие группы из представителей заинтересованных ведомств в 193 районах республики. В сельских врачебных пунктах, семейных поликлиниках и сходах граждан махаллей созданы секторы здоровья, служащие для пропаганды среди населения здорового образа жизни, повышения медицинской культуры в семьях, выявления и устранения факторов, негативно влияющих на здоровье матери и ребенка», – информирует китайский вуз.

 ИНДИЙСКИЕ ПРЕДСТАВИТЕЛИ ОБ УСПЕХАХ УЗБЕКИСТАНА В ОБЛАСТИ ОХРАНЫ МАТЕРИНСТВА И ДЕТСТВА

Осуществляемая в Узбекистане сильная социальная политика и предпринимаемые меры по охране материнства и детства вызывают широкий интерес зарубежных экспертных кругов. Так, индийские представители поделились своими мнениями и оценками в интервью ИА «Жахон».

Ману Миттал, профессор Центра по изучению стран Центральной Азии Университета имени Джавахарлала Неру:

– Следует отметить, что в Узбекистане со стороны правительства уделяется огромное внимание укреплению репродуктивного здоровья населения, охраны здоровья материнства и детства, потому что только от здоровой матери рождаются здоровые дети. Ознаменование 2016 года Годом здоровой матери и ребенка еще раз подтверждает эту мысль.

За годы независимости Узбекистан добился заметных успехов по снижению материнской и детской смертности и улучшению санитарно-эпидемиологической обстановки. Так, в рамках кардинального реформирования системы здравоохранения сформирована национальная модель охраны здоровья матери и ребенка, высокая эффективность которой признана во всем мире.

Нужно подчеркнуть, что осуществляемые в Узбекистане меры в области здравоохранения, в частности, по улучшению условий для рождения здоровых детей в стране заслуживают большого уважения и признания.

Автар Сингх, главный консультант журнала Business Central Asia:

– Я много раз бывал в Узбекистане и воочию увидел масштабные изменения во всех сферах жизни страны. Из года в год повышается уровень жизни и благосостояния населения. Создаются все условия для гармоничного развития молодого поколения.

Хотелось бы особо подчеркнуть, что за такой исторически короткий период республика достигла положительных результатов в области здравоохранения. Это увеличение продолжительности жизни граждан, сокращение материнской и детской смертности и улучшение физического здоровья.

«В УЗБЕКИСТАНЕ СФОРМИРОВАН ДЕЙСТВЕННЫЙ МЕХАНИЗМ ПО ОХРАНЕ МАТЕРИНСТВА И ДЕТСТВА»

Результаты осуществляемой в Узбекистане широкомасштабной работы по совершенствованию системы охраны семьи, материнства и детства, воспитанию гармонично развитого поколения, укреплению института семьи как основы сильного и стабильного государства вызывают большой интерес международного сообщества.

Так, зарубежные эксперты в интервью ИА «Жахон» поделились своими положительными оценками предпринимаемых мер в данном направлении.

Марк Боннель, президент Ассоциации «Авиценна-Франция»:

– В Узбекистане хорошо понимают, что благополучие и здоровье матери и ребенка являются одним из важнейших индикаторов уровня социально-экономического развития страны.

Семья, материнство и детство должны находиться под защитой государства. В данном контексте необходимо подчеркнуть, что именно Узбекистан, который осуществляет в 2016 году широкомасштабную Государственную программу «Год здоровой матери и ребенка», показывает пример всему мировому сообществу.

Как профессиональный врач и президент Ассоциации «Авиценна-Франция», я приветствую и поддерживаю проводимую в вашей республике работу в этой области. Здоровье семьи, особенно детей, считаю самым ценным активом молодой развивающейся страны.

Любовь Ерофеева, генеральный директор Российской ассоциации «Народонаселение и развитие» (РАНиР), доктор медицинских наук:

– Охрана материнства и детства, укрепление института семьи являются приоритетными задачами социальной политики Узбекистана. В этом направлении, имеющем ключевое значение для настоящего и будущего государства, в вашей стране ведется системная согласованная работа на всех уровнях органов власти и общества.

В силу своей профессии я хорошо знакома с осуществляемыми в республике мерами, направленными на создание в обществе условий для устойчивого семейного благополучия. В частности, улучшаются жилищные условия молодых семей, повышается качество образовательных и медицинских услуг, укрепляется материально-техническая база медучреждений, внедряются современные методы диагностики.

За прошедший период в стране создана прочная правовая база, позволяющая проводить качественные реформы в сфере здравоохранения. Это в очередной раз свидетельствует о решимости руководства Узбекистана продолжить курс, ориентированный на последовательное улучшение жизни людей и формирование условий, при которых каждая семья будет уверена в своем будущем.

Наша организация объединяет профессионалов медицинского и социального профиля, и мы готовы к взаимовыгодному сотрудничеству с нашими узбекскими коллегами по обмену опытом в реализации проектов в области охраны репродуктивного здоровья.

Норазизах Борханпрезидент Международной ассоциации деловых женщин Малайзии:

– Малайзия на системной основе изучает вводимые законодательные новшества в иностранных государствах в целях внедрения передового мирового опыта в сфере охраны материнства и детства. Так, положения Постановления первого Президента Ислама Каримова «О дополнительных мерах по охране здоровья матери и ребенка, формированию здорового поколения» были взяты за основу в деле совершенствования нормативно-правовой базы Малайзии в данной области.

Особый интерес у нас вызывает опыт республики в укреплении репродуктивного здоровья населения, формировании физически и духовно развитого поколения.

Узбекистан смог создать мощную и высокоэффективную систему медицинского обслуживания по всей территории страны. В частности, благодаря открытию новых скрининг-центров, семейных поликлиник и перинатальных центров удалось добиться сокращения материнской и младенческой смертности в 3 раза. Этот высокий результат также подтверждается оценками авторитетных международных институтов. Так, согласно Международной неправительственной организации «Save the Children» Узбекистан занимает одно из лидирующих мест в рейтинге лучших стран для жизни и развития детей.

Все это является свидетельством сформировавшегося в республике  действенного механизма по охране материнства и детства, повышению роли и активности женщин в общественной и социальной жизни страны.

Тецуджи Танака, исполнительный директор Института изучения Центральной Азии и Кавказа (Япония):

– За прошедшие годы в Узбекистане были разработаны и последовательно осуществлены меры по созданию благоприятных условий для рождения и воспитания здорового поколения. В процессе социальных реформ в вашей стране уделяется большое внимание повышению медицинской культуры в семьях, утверждению здорового образа жизни, что служит важным фактором укрепления здоровья населения.

Продолжение осуществляемой работы и новые инициативы позволят существенно укрепить сформированную эффективную систему охраны материнства и детства, воспитывать гармонично развитое молодое поколение в Узбекистане.

Момоко Чиба, профессор Университета Джунтендо (Япония):

– С первых лет независимости охрана материнства и детства была определена одним из стратегических направлений государственной социальной политики Узбекистана. Воспитание здорового поколения – это основа благополучной жизни народа. В целом высоко оцениваю осуществляемые в республике широкомасштабные реформы в данной сфере.

BNS: В УЗБЕКИСТАНЕ СЕМЬЯ, МАТЕРИНСТВО И ДЕТСТВО ПОД ЗАЩИТОЙ ГОСУДАРСТВА

В Узбекистане вопросы охраны семьи, материнства и детства, повышения медицинской культуры населения возведены в ранг государственной политики. Состояние здоровья матери и ребенка является важнейшим индикатором уровня социально-экономического развития страны. Об этом говорится в информационном материале, размещенном на сайте Балтийского новостного агентства (Baltic News Service, BNS).

В статье отмечается, что в соответствии с Государственной программой страны по дальнейшему укреплению репродуктивного здоровья населения, охране здоровья матерей, детей и подростков, в Узбекистане на 2014—2018 годы решаются актуальные задачи по обеспечению широкого и равного доступа к качественным медицинским услугам.

Подчеркивается, что за последние годы в здравоохранении Узбекистана выстроена вертикаль управления качеством лечебного процесса, созданы условия для дальнейшего внедрения методов диагностики и лечения, соответствующие рекомендациям международных организаций. Фонд народонаселения ООН оказывает республике содействие в работе по обеспечению всеобщего доступа к услугам по охране репродуктивного здоровья.

Также сообщается, что в Узбекистане в практику внедрены самые передовые в мире медицинские технологии, что позволяет поднять качество оказываемой в них специализированной медицинской помощи на высокий уровень. За годы независимости значительно снизились показатели материнской и младенческой смертности, укрепилось здоровье населения. Успешная работа по совершенствованию системы здравоохранения, охраны материнства и детства продолжена и в этом году в рамках Государственной программы «Год здоровой матери и ребенка».

«В Узбекистане ведется большая просветительская деятельность по повышению медицинской культуры населения по месту жительства, утверждению здорового образа жизни в обществе и улучшению репродуктивного здоровья. На основе принципа «Здоровая мать — здоровый ребенок» создаются все условия для массовости физкультурного женского движения, что положительно отражается на их здоровье и самочувствии. В этом важное значение имеет сотрудничество семьи, махалли и образовательных учреждений», – пишется в статье.

ИСПАНСКИЕ ЭКСПЕРТЫ: «В УЗБЕКИСТАНЕ ПРИНИМАЮТСЯ СЕРЬЕЗНЫЕ МЕРЫ ПО НЕДОПУЩЕНИЮ ИСПОЛЬЗОВАНИЯ ДЕТСКОГО И ПРИНУДИТЕЛЬНОГО ТРУДА»

building1


Как сообщалось ранее, в посольстве нашей страны в Мадриде состоялся «круглый стол» на тему: «Меры Узбекистана в области защиты прав и интересов молодого поколения». В его рамках были обсуждены также усилия, предпринимаемые в республике по недопущению использования детского и принудительного труда.

В частности, участники были проинформированы о проводимой в стране масштабной работе по пресечению случаев использования принудительного и детского труда. Подчеркивалось, что Узбекистан, как на уровне национального законодательства, так и посредством практических действий, добросовестно выполняет все международные стандарты в области обеспечения достойного труда, в том числе, исходящих из участия республики в основных Конвенциях МОТ.

Представителями Испании были даны положительные оценки осуществляемым в Узбекистане мерам по защите прав и интересов молодого поколения, которые приносят конкретные результаты.

Пилар Вияльба, начальник Департамента Министерства сельского хозяйства Испании:

– Я приветствую усилия Узбекистана по недопущению использования детского труда. Мы хорошо знакомы с этим вопросом, поскольку до недавних пор и в нашей стране имели место случаи привлечения детей к сельскохозяйственным работам. Как специалист хочу подчеркнуть, что к данным вопросам следует применять всесторонний подход, изучать имеющийся опыт, и сегодняшний «круглый стол» помог нам узнать, как Узбекистан обеспечивает недопущение использования труда детей.

Карлос Уриарте, председатель Молодежной организации общественно-политического движения «Панъевропейский Союз»:

– Конструктивное сотрудничество Узбекистана с МОТ свидетельствует о наличии твердой воли к улучшению ситуации в области труда. Отрадно, что узбекская сторона добивается конкретных положительных результатов от взаимодействия с МОТ, добросовестно и транспарентно реализует согласованные мероприятия, совершенствует национальное законодательство в области труда.

Проблема использования детского труда является актуальной не только для развивающихся стран, но и отдельных развитых государств. В Узбекистане в этом направлении осуществляются целенаправленные меры. Я, в частности, приветствую принятие нового закона Республики Узбекистан «О государственной молодежной политике». Думаю, что имплементация данного правового акта будет способствовать достижению намеченных целей по воспитанию в вашей стране здорового во всех отношениях молодого поколения.


НЕПРЕРЫВНОСТЬ ОБРАЗОВАНИЯ

 

На расширенном заседании Кабинета Министров, посвященном итогам развития страны в 2015-м и планам на 2016-й, отмечалось, что предстоит огромная по масштабам и содержанию работа по реализации Государственной программы “Год здоровой матери и ребенка”. Особое внимание в ней уделено таким вопросам, как дальнейшее укрепление материально-технической базы, кадрового потенциала перинатальных и скрининг-центров, патронажной службы, повышение уровня и качества ухода за молодыми матерями и детьми.

Для этого необходимо обеспечить непрерывность образования медиков, своевременное освоение ими всех инновационных методов лечения. Этим занимается Ташкентский институт усовершенствования врачей (ТашИУВ), в структуру которого входят четыре факультета и 52 кафедры, базирующиеся в ведущих клиниках, специализированных центрах и НИИ столицы.

– Это единственное профильное государственное учреждение последипломного образования наряду с факультетами повышения квалификации врачей Самаркандского и Андижанского медицинских институтов, – говорит проректор института профессор Хабибулла Акилов. – У нас трудятся опытные ученые – мастера своего дела, среди которых два академика, более 180 докторов и кандидатов медицинских наук, профессоров и доцентов, отличников здравоохранения, специалистов высшей категории. Они знают: медицина не стоит на месте. Практически ежедневно в мире появляются новые лекарственные препараты, виды операций, оборудование, внедряются современные технологии, что заставляет нас постоянно самосовершенствоваться.

По регламенту работники сферы долж­ны повышать свою квалификацию через каждые пять лет. Половину времени из 288 часов они проводят на профильных кафедрах института с отрывом от производства. Необходимо также участвовать в конференциях, съездах, проходить стажировку и циклы дистанционного обучения, посещать мастер-классы, заниматься самообразованием.

Сегодня только в системе Министерства здравоохранения занято более 75 тысяч медиков, а если прибавить к ним специалистов других ведомств и частного сектора, то получается, что ежегодно институт принимает порядка 17-18 тысяч слушателей. Для них в ТашИУВ ежегодно формируют образовательные прог­раммы разных направлений.

Год институт начал с обновления учебных программ кафедр педиатрического факультета: акушерства и гинекологии, педиатрии, детских инфекций и других. Открыли ряд новых курсов по детской анестезиологии, реанимации и хирургии неонатального возраста. Разработан цикл учебных курсов, посвященных повышению квалификации специалистов по малоинвазивным вмешательствам. Это так называемая “хирургия без разрезов”. Методика дает хороший эффект – больной может восстановиться в течение суток, сокращаются расходы на содержание в станционаре и медикаментозное лечение. До недавнего времени такие операции в нашей стране врачи делали только взрослым пациентам. Теперь все активнее практикуются в акушерстве и гинекологии, детской и даже неонатальной хирургии.

Созданы четыре межобластных центра неонатальной хирургии, для работы в которых началась подготовка профильных специалистов из числа детских хирургов. Совместно с Германским обществом по международному сотрудничеству (GIZ) при Республиканском перинатальном центре организован учебный центр, оснащенный современным симуляционным оборудованием. Аналогичные объекты функционируют в республиканских центрах экстренной медицинской помощи, акушерства и гинекологии, а также малоинвазивной хирургии детского возраста. Со всеми Ташкент­ский институт усовершенствования врачей заключил договоры о совместной деятельности. В распоряжении слушателей современное оборудование. Если раньше в ходе занятий они осуществляли хирургические вмешательства непосредственно на больном, то сейчас их сначала ждут компьютер, где специальная программа полностью симулирует операционное поле. Это позволяет в сжатые сроки подготовить достаточное количество специалистов, а также внедрить в медучреждениях районного и областного уровней малоинвазивные способы, в частности, лапаро- и торакоскопии.

Сотрудники кафедр ТашИУВ регулярно выезжают в регионы республики, где проводят выездные циклы повышения квалификации, консультируют больных, проводят мастер-классы и показательные операции. Сами наставники совершенствуют мастерство в ведущих клиниках Германии, Австрии, России, Южной Кореи и Японии.

– Обучение в странах СНГ более продуктивное, поскольку отсутствует языковой барьер, – говорит Хабибулла Акилов. – Чтобы повысить эффективность образования в других государствах, организовали для сотрудников института несколько курсов английского.

Довольно часто в ТашИУВ приглашают иностранных специалистов для проведения семинаров, тренингов и показательных операций совместно с республиканскими центрами. В каждом из них использование современных технологий находится на высоком уровне. Оборудование позволяет выводить картинку операционного поля с камеры на большой экран в учебной аудитории. Аудиосвязь дает возможность общаться с хирургом, задавать вопросы, на которые он отвечает по ходу операции, разъясняя и показывая, что и как нужно делать.

Каков результат всей обучающей деятельности, проводимой институтом? Каждый специалист, прошедший здесь повышение квалификации, внедряет полученные знания. А это означает улучшение качества оказания медицинских услуг.


Здоровье женщин – богатство общества

 

В семейной поликлинике №52 Юнусабадского района столицы прошел “круглый стол”, посвященный вопросам усиления деятельности действующих в махаллях секторов здоровья по профилактике рака молочной железы и укреплению здоровья женщин.

В мероприятии, организованном Комитетом женщин Узбекистана и Ташкентским городским главным управлением здравоохранения, приняли участие представители государственных и общественных организаций, врачи, консультанты органов самоуправления граждан по вопросам религиозного просвещения и духовно-нравственного воспитания, активисты махалли.

На мероприятии отмечалось, что в результате последовательной реализации положений разработанной под руководством Первого Президента нашей страны Ислама Каримова концепции “Здоровая мать – здоровый ребенок” в нашей стране все больше совершенствуется медицинское обслуживание населения, в частности, матерей, детей и подростков.

Масштаб проводимой в этом направлении работы расширяется в соответствии с постановлением Первого Президента Республики Узбекистан “О Государственной программе по дальнейшему укреплению репродуктивного здоровья населения, охране здоровья матерей, детей и подростков в Узбекистане на период 2014-2018 годы” от 1 августа 2014 года и Государственной программой “Год здоровой матери и ребенка”.

Рак груди является актуальной проблемой мировой медицины. В профилактике и раннем выявлении данного заболевания важную роль играет медицинско-профилактическая помощь, основанная на передовых методиках медицины. В нашей стране квалифицированную, основанную на современных стандартах медицинскую помощь в этом направлении оказывают около трех тысяч сельских врачебных пунктов и семейных поликлиник.

Одной из таких современных клиник является семейная поликлиника №52 Юнусабадского района. В медицинском учреждении, обслуживающем более 75 тысяч жителей, созданы все условия для организации первичного медицинского осмотра в полном соответствии с международными стандартами. В частности, вместе с врачами общей практики в раннем выявлении рака груди участвуют онкологи, акушеры-гинекологи, эффективно используется ультразвуковое исследование.

– Предупреждение рака молочной железы зависит и от медицинской культуры женщин, – говорит главный врач семейной поликлиники Кимё Шокирова. – Поэтому мы особое внимание уделяем пропаганде здорового образа жизни в семьях, повышению медицинской грамотности населения касательно факторов, негативно воздействующих на репродуктивное здоровье, усилению чувства ответственности женщин за свое здоровье. За минувшие девять месяцев текущего года проведено более 8 тысяч встреч и бесед с населением.

В ходе беседы врачи рассказали участникам мероприятия о причинах возникновения рака молочной железы, значимости первичного медицинско-профилактического осмотря для его предотвращения. Состоялся обмен мнениями по вопросам усиления охраны здоровья матерей и детей, полного охвата женщин фертильного возраста и девочек-подростков углубленным медицинским осмотром, своевременного лечения выявленных заболеваний, задачам секторов здоровья в повышении медицинской культуры в семьях.

На мероприятии выступила заместитель Премьер-министра Республики Узбекистан, председатель Комитета женщин республики Э.Баситханова.

ЖЕНЩИНА — ЦЕНТР СЕМЬИ


Важным фактором стабильности в обществе является благополучие семей, здоровое материнство и детство. В годы независимости эта истина наполнились новым смыслом и содержанием.

В стране созданы условия для рождения и воспитания здорового поколения, для достижения долгосрочного эффекта — сохранения и улучшения генофонда нации, повышения продолжительности и качества жизни населения.

Сформированы прочные правовые механизмы в этой области. Реализуется национальная модель «Здоровая мать — здоровый ребенок».  Особое внимание уделяется совершенствованию патронажной системы, которая осуществляется врачами общей практики и патронажными медицинскими сестрами сельских врачебных пунктов и семейных поликлиник. На сегодняшний день в республике насчитывается 2 994 сельских врачебных пункта и 110 семейных поликлиник, в которых трудятся 10 091 врач и около 350 тысяч медицинских сестер.

В соответствии с Государственной программой по дальнейшему укреплению репродуктивного здоровья населения, охране здоровья матерей, детей и подростков в Узбекистане на 2014—2018 годы Комитет женщин совместно с Министерством здравоохранения проводит работу с врачами обшей практики, медицинскими сестрами СВП и семейных поликлиник не только по повышению их профессионального мастерства, но и воспитанию необходимых духовных и этических качеств поведения медицинских работников.

С целью реализации основных направлений Государственной программы отделом по охране материнства и детства Комитета женщин Узбекистана на основе социального партнерства образованы постоянно действующие рабочие группы из представителей заинтересованных ведомств в 193 районах страны. В сельских врачебных пунктах, семейных поликлиниках и сходах граждан махаллей созданы секторы здоровья. Основная их задача — пропаганда среди населения  здорового образа жизни, повышение медицинской культуры в семьях, выявление и устранение факторов, негативно влияющих на здоровье матери и ребенка. Понедельник  считается днем пожилых людей, вторник — беременных женщин, среда — детей и подростков, четверг — экологии, пятница — женщин и девочек, суббота — день спорта.

Вот одни из последних мероприятий: в день беременных женщин в актовом зале махалли «Журжоний» была проведена встреча с будущими мамами, на которой врачи и медсестры рассказали о рациональном питании.  По инициативе комитета в семейной поликлинике № 52 Юнусабадского района столицы  для женщин работал сектор здоровья махалли «Адолат», представленный  врачом общей практики, двумя патронажными медицинскими сестрами и шестью активистами махалли. В этот же день, являющийся днем женщин и девочек, было организовано мероприятие по раннему выявлению онкологических заболеваний.  С помощью видеоролика всех женщин обучили методике самостоятельного  выявления патологии молочных желез. Акушер-гинеколог доступно разъяснил  жительницам махалли,  какие из выявленных признаков являются  поводом для посещения врача.

Отдел по охране материнства и детства Комитета женщин осуществляет постоянный мониторинг секторов здоровья и оказывает практическую помощь в организации работы и решении проблем на местах. Кроме того, в текущем году проведено 29 семинаров в Ташкенте и столичной области, 16 — в Бухарской, 12 — в Навоийской, 19 — в Самаркандской, 7 — в Джизакской, 11 — в Сырдарьинской, 8 — в Наманганской, 11 — в Ферганской и 9 — в Андижанской областях.

Жители махаллей уже ощутили эффект работы секторов здоровья, они отмечают повышение ответственности медицинских работников, внимание, заботу, участие в решении семейных вопросов. И если на местах есть нерешенные проблемы, то совместными усилиями комитетов женщин, органов здравоохранения и сходами граждан они будут устранены.

 


В ИСПАНИИ ОЗНАКОМИЛИСЬ С ДОСТИЖЕНИЯМИ УЗБЕКИСТАНА В СФЕРЕ ОХРАНЫ МАТЕРИНСТВА И ДЕТСТВА

building

На днях в испанской столице состоялся «круглый стол» на тему: «Меры Узбекистана в области защиты прав и интересов молодого поколения». В мероприятии, организованном по инициативе посольства нашей страны в Мадриде, приняли участие представители Конгресса, профильных министерств и ведомств, академических и экспертных кругов, а также СМИ Испании.

На встрече испанская сторона была ознакомлена с реализуемыми в нашей стране широкомасштабными мерами по воспитанию и всестороннему развитию молодого поколения, обеспечению их здоровья, физического и интеллектуального становления. Особое внимание было уделено реализации Государственной программы «Год здоровой матери и ребенка», а также концепции «Здоровая мать – здоровый ребенок». Подчеркивалось, что эти документы выступают своего рода «дорожной картой» в осуществлении мер по непрерывному совершенствованию системы здравоохранения. Важными их составляющими были названы совершенствование законодательной базы, касающейся охраны семьи, материнства и детства, укрепление материально-технической базы и кадрового потенциала медицинских учреждений.

Корреспондент ИА «Жахон» побеседовал с некоторыми участниками мероприятия и поинтересовался их оценками достижений Узбекистана в данном направлении.

Мария-Луиза Кальдерон, директор по институциональным вопросам университетской клиники HM Hospitals:

– Несмотря на то, что Узбекистан является относительно молодым государством, ему удалось достичь большого прогресса в области улучшения генофонда.

В сентябре этого года представители нашей клиники участвовали в международной конференции на тему: «Охрана семьи, материнства и детей – основа устойчивого развития общества: опыт Узбекистана», где смогли непосредственно ознакомиться с результатами деятельности в этой области. Следует подчеркнуть, что они весьма позитивны. Впечатляет, что на государственном уровне реализуется целая программа, которая наряду с прочим предусматривает задачи по дальнейшему улучшению медицинского обслуживания в сельской местности. Это действительно масштабная и важная работа. Хотела бы поздравить народ Узбекистана с тем, что государство смогло добиться выполнения требований Целей развития тысячелетия ООН, в частности, в сфере сокращения младенческой смертности.

Хуан Игнасио Весино, деятель культуры, руководитель организации «Актуальное наследие» и член Национального совета Испании по делам  ЮНЕСКО:

– Сегодняшнее мероприятие убедило нас в том, что в Узбекистане  вопросы прав и интересов молодого поколения возведены в ранг государственной политики. Это весьма важно и заслуживает высокой оценки. Реализуемые поэтапные меры в области охраны материнства и детства, расширение возможностей в образовательной сфере – демонстрируют движение в правильном направлении. Мы приветствуем и рады поддержать этот процесс.

Энрике Перес-Эрнандес, председатель консалтингового центра Eurocofin, профессор испанского Университета Комплутенса:

– Я впечатлен результатами реализации социальной политики в вашей стране, в частности, в сфере охраны здоровья населения и, особенно, молодого поколения. Во всем мире Узбекистан знают как землю, по которой пролегал Великий шелковый путь, обладающую замечательными историческими и туристическими достопримечательностями. Сегодня, знакомясь  с теми масштабными преобразованиями, которые происходят в этом  ключевом государстве Центральной Азии, мы видим его динамичный рост, отражающийся в успешном развитии таких важных социальных сфер, как здравоохранение, образование и всестороння забота о молодежи. Этот факт, несомненно, вселяет уверенность в том, что ваша страна действительно имеет великое будущее.

Well-Being and Happiness of the Country

 healthy_child1

The people of Uzbekistan pin hopes on the younger generation. If you ask any of our compatriots about the meaning of life, they will reply without hesitations: seeing the happiness and well-being of their children.

It stands to reason why the first order of Uzbekistan was named ‘Soglom Avlod Uchun’ (For a Healthy Generation), and a monument to a mother and child stands on Independence Square. It is not easy to find a country in the world where people treat children so kindly, love and praise them infinitely.

The government has been paying close attention to the upbringing of healthy and comprehensively advanced generation.  The state youth policy ranks among priorities. Every step in this direction is supported by the population, causing excitement among the people.

There is a strong legislative foundation for the youth policy. The Law ‘On state youth policy in the Republic of Uzbekistan’ of November 20, 1991 was among the first laws adopted after gaining independence.

The issues of comprehensive protection of the interests of young people are reflected in the Constitution of Uzbekistan, 22 laws, many decrees and resolutions of the President and the Cabinet of Ministers. Uzbekistan ratified more than 30 international acts aimed at protecting the rights and interests of the younger generation.

Despite socio-economic difficulties, the improvement of the nation’s gene pool and education of harmoniously developed generation has been a priority from the first years of independence. The idea of healthy and well-educated young people as a foundation of the great state was put forward yet in those early days.

Over the years, the leadership created appropriate conditions for the children to be born and grow up healthy, get quality and up-to-date education, and established themselves as  worthy members of society. Reforms on mother and child protection, strengthening of social protection, improvement of education, children’s sports development were successfully implemented. They complemented each other, building a coherent and inseparable system. Today, modern medical centers, educational institutions, sports facilities and youth palaces contribute to the upbringing of young people healthy and harmoniously developed personalities.

The concept of ‘state youth policy’ has been increasingly heard of late. It was defined in the recently approved law ‘On state youth policy’ in the new edition, which is another clear proof of close attention to young people. The act reflects a system of socio-economic, organizational and legal measures that are implemented by the state and provide for the creation of conditions for social establishment and development of intellectual, creative and other capacities in young people.

The new legal act was built on the law of 1991 and under the national program The Year of  Mother and Child Health to further streamline the mechanisms of formation and implementation of youth policy. The unified legislative act is aimed at a unified interpretation and targeted effect of the regulations, and clear definition of concepts of ‘youth’, ‘young family’, ‘young specialist’, ‘youth entrepreneurship’. It also settles the mechanisms aimed at streamlining the state youth policy, and stipulates government guarantees for young people.

The policy priorities include ensuring of social, economic, political and other rights and interests of children and young people, affordable and quality education for the younger generation, promotion of physical, intellectual and moral development, creation of conditions for employment, education in the spirit of respect for the laws, national and universal values, promotion of healthy lifestyle, development of sports and more.

The act specifies the mission and powers of central and local state youth policy makers and institutions, and their responsibility. The implementation of the provisions on involvement of public and particularly youth organizations, local authorities and the media in the youth policy is important because education of the younger generation is seen as a common concern of the state and society.

Support and encouragement of youth initiatives, priority of spiritual, moral and cultural values, prevention of discrimination of young people rank among main principles of the policy. It focuses on ensuring the rights, freedoms and lawful interests of young people, protection of their life and health, teaching them to withstand harmful influences and movements, and cultivating strong beliefs and outlooks.

The new law will provide a legal basis for further work on guaranteeing the rights and interests of young people, creation of conditions and opportunities for full-fledged and happy life, implementation of their creative and intellectual capacity, education of comprehensively developed personalities who fully meet the requirements of the 21st century.

2016 was declared the Year of Mother and Child Health in Uzbekistan. A healthy child is obviously born in a healthy and happy family, by a healthy mother. Tested by time, this truth is getting filled with deep content and a large-scale work.

Prospective spouses pass a procedure of pre-marital medical examination. Rural health units in all regions, regional diversified hospitals, perinatal and screening centers, gynecological and maternity hospitals provide women with qualified medical services. Adolescent girls and women of reproductive age are provided with free medical examination. Regular enlightenment activities improve their health culture, and promote healthy lifestyles.

As a result of abovementioned measures, Uzbekistan has significantly reduced the level of maternal and infant mortality, preventing hereditary diseases and congenital malformations. The incidence of acute respiratory viral infections, pneumonia, bronchitis, scoliosis has been decreasing in children. Weight and growth indicators in boys and girls comply with World Health Organization standards.

Development of children’s sports has become another important component of raising a healthy generation. More than 2 million children are regularly engaged in 30 kinds of sports in modern sports complexes in all regions of the country, including remote villages. The involvement of girls in sports as future mothers, and strengthening of their health is of special attention.

Modern standard design houses that are currently being built in rural areas have been improving the conditions and quality of life of families, facilitating the life of women. As a result, they spend more time for themselves, their health and children. The younger generation is growing up healthy and with broad outlook in comfortable houses and modern conditions.

The policy has been producing a visible effect on health and development of our children.

Health implies not only physical but also intellectual perfection. In this context, the role of mothers is just boundless, as they spend the bulk of their time with children. A mother needs to be educated if she wants to raise polymathic personalities. Therefore, Uzbekistan has been attaching great importance to the education of girls, and providing them with up-to-date specialties.

In context of the youth policy, it would be appropriate to mention the Public Youth Movement Kamolot as one of the country’s largest nongovernmental organizations. It brings together about 5 million boys and girls. Annually, it initiates hundreds of projects on catalyzing social activity of youth. Such an approach promotes the establishment of politically competent, ideologically mature, and highly spiritual young men and women who are protected against alien ideological forces.

Three years ago, Kamolot kicked off a unique project of youth festival ‘We are the children of a great country!’. In a short time, the initiative has turned into a powerful nationa-wide movement. Youth festivals on March-June in all regions of Uzbekistan were dedicated to the 25th anniversary of independence.

As part of the project, young men and women were introduced to ongoing socio-political and socio-economic reforms and democratic transformations in Uzbekistan, realized the importance of favorable conditions that had been created for each of them.

The republican advocacy group, which was involved in youth festivals, included people of different ages and professions – MPs, researchers, athletes, entrepreneurs, farmers, poets and writers, actors of theater and cinema, pop and opera singers, musicians and artists. Most of them have a rich background of achievements in their profession. The rest are coevals of independence who have made a progress, which is worthy of admiration. They have witnessed changes in the minds of thousands of people, especially young people, the transformations in regions over the years of independence.

The tour of this year’s youth festival ‘We are the children of a great country’ has left a bright trace from Karakalpakstan to the Ferghana Valley. The participants held nearly 1,500 events in different parts of the country, awakening a sense of pride for the beloved homeland in the hearts of young men and women.

Provision of young families with apartments in Kamolot houses is another important project of the youth organization. A husband and a wife under 30 at the moment of submission of application have a right for such an accommodation on the basis of mortgage loans if they are registered as subject to the improvement of housing conditions, and made big progress in science, art, literature, sport and other areas.

Apartments are available through preferential mortgage loans of commercial banks to repay the cost of housing for a period of 20 years, and loans of five year grace period, without initial payment, and the interest rate equal to the refinancing rate of the Central Bank, which expand the capacity of young families for prompt repayment of loans.

The newlyweds are provided with double-room apartments, and families with two or more children – with two-bedroom apartments. This is a motivation for strengthening and further expansion of young families.

There are many similar projects. The number of projects implemented in the social and legal area alone has increased fivefold, and the number of their participants has increased by eight times over the past five years.

Civil society institutions, including self-government bodies, have been actively involved in the implementation of youth policy along with government agencies. It is the mahalla, like one big family, tirelessly cares for bringing children up healthy and smart.

Public commissions under citizens’ assemblies make a big contribution to this work. For instance, commissions on education and spirituality promote careful preservation and enhancement of cultural values, and cultivation of the best human qualities of love and devotion to the homeland in young people. The local commissions on minors, youth and sports create conditions for strengthening health of young people and their regular exercise, prevention of offenses.

The contribution of commissions on women issues is remarkable: they initiate events on provision of girls with education and profession, future mother’s health, raising children.

Parent Universities under citizens’ assemblies provide consulting for young mothers and fathers by psychologists, doctors, lawyers and other professionals, and reputable residents of local communities with a wealth of life experience. They team up with medical institutions for regular medical check-ups of women, children and adolescents. Public groups Mahalla Posboni help with patriotic education and crime prevention. There is a system-based monitoring of employment of graduates of vocational colleges. The issues of their employment are effectively addressed through their involvement in entrepreneurship.

Consultants of citizens’ assemblies on religious, spiritual and moral education keep close contacts with educational institutions, healthcare institutions, nongovernmental organizations. Meetings and seminars with different experts have grown into a good platform for exchanging experience in rehabilitation of social and spiritual atmosphere in families, preparation of young people for family life.

The unique mechanism of interaction ‘family – mahalla – educational institution’ is highly relevant. It is called to streamline the performance of the three basic institutions and strengthen cooperation between them, which requires good knowledge and professionalism.

Workshops on ‘Priority aspects of implementation of the mechanism ‘family – mahalla – educational institution’ are held in all regions of the country for representatives of governmental and public organizations that are engaged in education.

Manuals and guidelines on further strengthening of the role of parents in children’s development make the work more effective. Specialists hold regular educational conversations with parents and students on ‘Raising a child is a fruit of the Future’, ‘Family as a sacred concept’, ‘The spiritual unity of the mahalla and family’, and others.

During such events, activists of citizens’ assemblies, teachers and parents together discuss the ways of improving quality of education at schools, enhancement of children’s interest in classes, cultivation of healthy lifestyles in them, crime prevention, addictions, protection of teenagers from the influence of the mass culture, which is alien to the Uzbek mentality, and other relevant topics. The performance and behavior of students is constantly monitored.

… Education of harmoniously developed generation is a continuous process. It requires constant implementation of a broad range of tasks, close attention and responsibility of each person, each family, the whole society, and huge funds for the implementation of the state youth policy, which are spared by the government.

Uzbekistan has many reasons for being proud of its young people with firm convictions and active civic position, devoted to the Motherland. One can not but be proud of, for example, our Olympians and Paralympians who brought an unprecedented ‘harvest’ of medals from Rio de Janeiro, and raised high the prestige of the Uzbek sports. One can not but be proud of our students, who win subject Olympiads each year, suggesting the uniqueness of the National Staff Training Program, which already produces an ‘explosive’ effect, our young artists, as they demonstrate the value of the national culture at home and abroad.

Today’s boys and girls are the children of independence. They set high goals for themselves, they are responsible and implicated in the fate of the homeland, and see service for the benefit of its prosperity as a sacred duty. Each of them believes that he is the son or daughter of a great country.

It is worth to refer to the results of sociological survey of Ijtimoiy Fikr Center, as it identified life priorities in present young people. Its main idea comes to the fact that the absolute majority of young men and women see themselves as patriots of Uzbekistan. Selfless service to the Motherland and readiness to defend it, promotion of people’s fame and value of national traditions, study of the heritage of our great ancestors, history of the native land and works of the state leader are highly relevant among the youth.

The study revealed high optimism in young people, clear plans for the future, which are associated with the desire to become good specialists and serve to the fatherland, as well as with the creation of a family.

The people who have grown the younger generation with such qualities can look with confidence to the future.

 


Uzbekistan Introducing the Technology of ‘Second Birth’ of Newborns

The prenatal centers are adopting the technology of resuscitation of children with pulmonary disease who have a high risk to the death. 

Respiratory distress syndrome is one of the serious problems that face doctors nursing premature newborns. This disease is manifested by the development of respiratory failure immediately after birth or within a few hours after. And within two or three days gradual recovery starts or death of the baby.

The reason for this disease is the lack of or insufficient amount of the body’s natural surfactant – a substance that prevents the decrease of alveolar exhalation and, accordingly, reduces the effort required for the unfolding of the lungs on inhalation. In other words, it is a substance that is necessary for the child, so that he/she could breathe normally.

If ten years ago there was a high risk of death of these newborns, then today the situation is changing. More countries are adopting in their clinics the replacement therapy, that is the child is administered the missing amount of surfactant. This became possible with the start of production of necessary drugs. During the ten years of practice, this therapy has been proven effective. Therefore Uzbekistan headed for the introduction of these technologies in domestic clinics. Within the State Program ‘Year of Healthy Mother and Child’ the prenatal center of the capital is starting to introduce this technology. 50 ampoules of the drug have been purchased for this purpose.

In the future, the technology will be implemented in all regional prenatal centers.

 


Uzbekistan Introducing the Technology of Intrauterine Transfusion

 

The Republican Specialized Scientific and Practical Medical Center of Obstetrics and Gynecology is going to introduce a new method of treatment of hemolytic disease, which in some cases is the only way to save the baby.

The pregnant woman and the fetus are one: the work of all organs and systems are closely linked. But there are situations when in this unified system happens ‘real conflicts.’ It occurs at the blood incompatibility between mother and fetus. But modern medicine is able to resolve this problem.

Because of the blood incompatibility between mother and fetus, and rarely Rh factor, the hemolytic disease of the fetus develops. This brings to hemolysis that is the destruction of red blood cells, leading to anemia, brain and kidney damage of the baby. Since red blood cells are responsible for the ‘delivery’ of oxygen to the organs, at their decline anoxia begins, which in turn brings to jaundice, anemia and edema of newborns, and even to fetal death.

“Doctors learned to fight this problem back in the 60s of the last century,” say the director of the Center Dilbar Najmutdinova. “Then they used the method of intraperitoneal blood transfusion. Not so long ago the new method has been developed: the intrauterine blood transfusion is made to the fetus through the umbilical cord vessels under ultrasound guidance. The need for repeated blood transfusions to the fetus doctors determine to the level of hematocrit, within two to three weeks after the first treatment.

Sometimes it is the only chance to save the baby’s life, and today we are ready to introduce the new technology.”


Doctors implement diagnostic technology using biochips

 

Medical chip reader has arrived to Tashkent. The Research Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion has been preparing for implementation of the new ultra-precise diagnostic technology.

In the near future the equipment will be delivered to the Department of Molecular Medicine and Cell Technology of the Institute. The head of the department, Professor Khamid Karimov explained to the correspondent of Uzbekistan Today what the new equipment will change:

“We prepare for use of biological microchips or, as they are more commonly called, DNA microarrays in practice. This is one of the latest tools of biology and medicine of the XXI century. We will be the first clinic in Uzbekistan, where these technologies will be applied.”

Biochips were invented in the late 90s by Russian and American scientists. They are now actively produced by several American biotech firms. They are also produced in Russia, at the Center for Biological Microchips of the RAS Institute of Molecular Biology.

Biochips are used in medicine for a variety of purposes. They will be used in our institute for diagnosis of leukemia and other cancers.

Biochips enable fast, in a matter of days or even hours, distinguishing types of leukemia, which are indistinguishable externally. Patients can be cured quickly and effectively by modern medicine in some leukemia types. In the other cased it’s not worth even to try curing – it must to do bone marrow transplantation immediately. Types of leukemia are difficult to distinguish, so the treatment strategy has to be chosen correctly from the moment of detection of the disease.

The equipment is necessary to use this technology. The chip reader ordered by our clinic has already delivered to Tashkent. The chips will be purchased in the nearest time. The negotiations with the manufacturers are now in full swing.

Practical use of the new technologies is planned to start prior to July.

The problems of protection of the family, motherhood and childhood, increasing the population’s awareness about the medical culture have been raised to the level of state policy in Uzbekistan.

Maternal and child health is an important indicator of the level of socio-economic development of the country. The preservation of the gene pool of the nation depends, after all, largely on the health of mothers.

This was emphasized at the International “round table” meeting on the subject “Protection of motherhood and childhood is the basis of sustainable development of society: Uzbekistan’s experience”, which was held in Tashkent.

The forum was organized by the Ministry of Healthcare, Women’s Committee of Uzbekistan, Independent Institute on monitoring the formation of civil society (IIMFCS), the UN Population Fund and other organizations. Taking part in it were parliamentarians, representatives of government, public, foreign and international organizations and experts.

The event represented Uzbekistan’s experience in the sphere of consolidation of reproductive health of the population, protection of motherhood and childhood, first and foremost, in remote rural areas.

Particular attention is paid to the tasks provided for by the government programs aimed at ensuring the birth and upbringing of healthy children. Thus, in accordance with the State Program on further strengthening reproductive health, protection of maternal, child and adolescent health in Uzbekistan for 2014-2018 are being solved urgent problems on a broad and equitable access to quality health care, improvement of material and technical base and personnel potential of medical institutions, introduction of modern methods of diagnosis, and provision of skilled healthcare to mothers, children and adolescents.

Vertical management structure in the treatment process has been built in recent years to secure quality medical service, and were created for the further implementation of diagnostics and treatment methods, consistent with the recommendations of international organizations, stressed the speakers.

“The UN Population Fund renders Uzbekistan assistance in ensuring general access to services on the protection of reproductive health,” noted head of the UNPF in Uzbekistan Mieko Yabuta. “We have established close cooperation in this sphere with the Women’s Committee of the republic and the Ministry of Healthcare. Your country has achieved significant progress in all fields through consistent implementation of state programs and realizing the Sustainable Development Goals.

Also were noted great activities carried out on the development and strengthening of material and technical basis of medical facilities, including maternity hospitals, perinatal and screening centers, and rural medical stations.

The forum participants emphasized that successful work on the improvement of the healthcare system, protection of maternity and childhood was continued within the framework of the State program “The Year of Healthy Mother and Child”. Regular in-depth medical examinations have been organized across the country. Pregnant women are provided with multivitamin pills. Weeks of health-improvement of women of childbearing age, children and adolescent girls, the campaign “No one will be left without attention and care” and other events are being organized on a regular basis.

The social partnership between government authorities and civil society institutions in the implementation of state programs on the protection of motherhood and childhood and raising the medical awareness of the population aroused special interest. Great enlightenment activity is being carried out in this area in the communities and the healthy lifestyle is being introduced in the society. All conditions are being created on the basis of the principle “Healthy mother – healthy child” for involving women into mass sports movement. Cooperation between family, makhalla and educational institutions is a very important element of this activity.

Within the framework of the international “round table” foreign experts – leading specialists in reproductive health fr om Spain, Germany, Hungary, as well as representatives of international organizations in Uzbekistan visited the family polyclinic No.23 in Uchtepa district of the capital city, wh ere they acquainted themselves with the work of the doctors and patronage nurses and attended the citizens’ assembly at the “Zhurzhony” makhalla.

This polyclinic has been operating since 2006. 20 general practitioners receive patients at this polyclinic fitted out with modern medical equipment. These include ultrasound devices, electric cardiographers and digital X-ray. Also functions here a physiotherapy department. The physical therapy room is fitted out with fitness equipment. Doctors carefully monitor the health of 9084 women of fertile age from nine neighboring makhallas.

“I am amazed at the extent of the work carried out on the improvement of the population’s reproductive health and the care about the youth,” said the HM Hospitals’ expert on public health Javier Casquero Lara (Spain). “Together with a group of experts within the international “round table” we visited a family polyclinic and a makhalla. I am delighted with what I have been able to see”.

The event participants adopted recommendations, which will form the basis for further activities on the protection of motherhood and childhood in our country.

 


Happy families and children

The construction of 296.3 km of energy networks and 307.5 km of gas pipelines is currently underway. 1,300 km of water pipes are currently being built to supply the settlements with quality drinking water.

It is hard to imagine modern life without home appliances. The national program “The Year of Healthy Mother and Child” envisages the assistance for low-income families with purchasing household appliances. In particular, the Council of Federation of Trade Unions procures electrical appliances for 3,000 women from low-income families living in remote rural areas.

Young families are supported by means of mortgage loans for housing construction and renovation, purchase of household appliances. The central and commercial banks, the Council of Federation of Trade Unions work in this direction.

Health in the spotlight

The provision of health facilities with modern equipment has been underway. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health has been attaching importance to the rational use of new technologies in strengthening people’s health. In order to make the ongoing measures even more effective, the medical workers are focused on the early revealing of diseases.

A Medical Nursing Month is currently underway across the country. It is the second rally this year to last until August 11. During the previous month on March 1 – April 1, more than 19 million people were covered with medical examination.

Youth as the Locomotive

The German charity company Kinder sollen sehen e.V. has organized a presentation in the city of Odenthal informing about the Uzbek National Program “Year of healthy mother and child”.

The audience was provided with information on the priority directions of the state social policy. It was noted that for the implementation of the State Program “Year of healthy mother and child” is spent more than 7 trillion soums. In addition to strengthening the material-technical base of medical and preschool facilities, the tasks designated in the document are the improvement of legislation and the regulatory framework regarding the protection of the family, motherhood and childhood.

Under Reliable Protection

healthy_child1

A whopping 7.5 trillion soums and $194 million is the cost of ‘The Year of Healthy Mother and Child’ national program, this year’s body of measures to protect children’s interests. It covers all areas of bringing up an intellectual and comprehensively advanced generation, and creating favorable conditions for that.

A holistic standard

The construction of modern standard design housing in rural areas and new high-rise buildings in cities has improved the living conditions of thousands of families. The large-scale complex of measures on the development of social infrastructure in settlements, improvement of their water supply and other public service systems is underway. Improvement of water supply to rural settlements of Bayaut, Khavast, Mirzaobod, Sardoba and Oqoltin districts in Syrdarya region ranks among the largest projects. It is expected that the completion of the project in 2017 will tackle all the problems of drinking water supply in the region.

The reconstruction, overhaul and equipping of health facilities, nursery schools, general schools, lyceums, colleges and universities, and strengthening of human resources has been underway in the current year too. The introduction of advanced and digital technologies has been a special focus.

Prevention of diseases has been a special priority. The complex of measures on promoting healthy nutrition and physically active lifestyles has significantly expanded along with the service of mother and child screening, prevention of infectious diseases, including vaccination. The Ministry of Health introduced regulations that limit the availability of trans-fatty acids, salt and sugars in ready-made foods.

The use of interactive whiteboards has become conventional in many schools. About three thousand devices of this kind are daily used at schools, while the Ministry of Public Education continues implementing projects on supplying other institutions with such equipment. The advanced technologies make the learning process more interesting, and effective.

A few days ago, all schools in the country held the rally ‘Goodbye, School! Hello College!’, which went under the motto ‘Modern knowledge for modern professions’. All graduates will continue study in academic lyceums and vocational colleges. Specific measures will help to prepare school graduates for marketable trades and vocations.

22 vocational colleges were reoriented for this purpose. The ongoing changes suggest the increasing demand for specialists in service sector and industry. Almost all of the changes are associated with intensified staff training in these areas. For example, the Markhamat College of Agriculture in the Andijan region will now educate specialists for service sector too, and Boz Pedagogical College is radically changing its specialization: it will also train staff exclusively for the service sector.

Freedom of choice

The current education system has been promoting the education of creative and independently thinking generation. Every citizen is free to choose. All the good aspirations of young people are supported by the state, as stipulated by one of the sections of the national program the Year of Mother and Child Health.

The mechanisms of employing graduates of secondary special and vocational education institutions have been streamlined. For instance, quadripartite agreements on mandatory practical training have been concluded this year by 478,900 graduates of vocational colleges, 200,000 organizations and enterprises, administration of educational institutions and corresponding municipalities. Previously, the agreements were tripartite and did not involve the municipalities. The participation of the fourth side has helped to strengthen discipline in observing contractual obligations of all parties of agreements.

The focus of Akmal Ikramdzhanov’s creativity – is European classical renaissance art. One of the strongest points of the artist – is interaction of the principles of culture of the West and the East. He’s not one of those artists who splash out emotions on canvas. He draws every detail carefully, even meticulously. Moreover, he is a teacher who has risen generations of high-class specialists,” art critic Elmira Akhmedova says.

spanish_people

Round table dedicated to the implementation in Uzbekistan of the State program “Year of a healthy mother and child” was held in the Spanish city Toledo. The event was organized by the Embassy of our country in Spain in collaboration with the University Hospital HM Hospitales.

The representatives of Toledo’s social institutions, specialists, PhD students of the university clinic of HM Hospitales attended the meeting. They got acquainted with the goals and objectives of the State program, as well as with integrated activities of this program.

It was highlighted that the initiative of President Islam Karimov to declare the year 2016 as a year of a healthy mother and child became another important step in the consistent implementation of the concept of “Healthy mother – healthy child”. It was stressed that the state program is a kind of “road map” to implement a consistent and systematic work carried out in the country for the continuous improvement of the health system. Particularly, the document provides the implementation of such objectives as improving the legislative system relating to the protection of family, motherhood and childhood; strengthening the material and technical grounds and human capacities of health facilities.

Director of Institutional issues of HM Hospitales clinic Maria Luisa Calderon in the interview with “Jahon” news agency said that: “Thanks to today’s meeting we have got acquainted the huge attention paid in Uzbekistan to health issues, including relating to the formation of a healthy generation.  I am impressed of the consistency and coherence of the endeavors conducted in this particular direction. Your country is successfully moving towards achieving the main goals of the United Nations in the field of sustainable development, despite the fact that a very short historical period passed since receiving  Independence. Of course, a deep awareness of the concept of “healthy nation”, which can not be formed without special attention to the protection of maternity and childhood, plays an important role in this process too.

The director of the University of Hospital Reproductive Center, Professor Isidoro Bruna noted that: “The World Health Organization defines “reproductive health” as a condition of complete physical, mental and social well-being rather than just absence of disease or infirmity… I would like to make some parallels between the definition of the State program of “Year of a healthy mother and child”and the main activities included in it. It should be noted that such an integrated approach to these issues is the most rational and promising approach, which will surely provide the highest results. It was nice to get acquainted with statistical data showing a substantial reduction of maternal and infant mortality in your country in recent years. Of course, without the consistent work made in Uzbekistan at the state level, it would be impossible to achieve such impressive figures”.

information_youth

An informational material about the attention paid in our country to the development of young people has been disseminated at the United Nations Headquarters in New York as an official document of the 70th session of the UN General Assembly.

The material, which was widely publicized in the six official languages of the Organization, noted that the distinctive feature of fundamental reforms policy implementing in the country since the first days of independence, aimed at building a prosperous democratic state and society, is its clear social orientation.

“Today, more than 60 percent of Uzbekistan’s population is young people. Therefore, a key priority of all the positive changes in the country has become a concern for the upbringing of harmoniously developed young generation. Solid legal foundation in this sphere is the provisions of the Constitution. An important step in this direction was the adoption of the Law “On the basis of state youth policy in the Republic of Uzbekistan” on 20 November 1991, which raised the issue on the attention of the younger generation in the country to the level of state policy”, – the document says.

In addition, it is noted that National program for cadres training is successfully operating in Uzbekistan, which has no analogues in the world on its importance and scale by the opinion of international experts.

Presidential Decree “On additional measures directed to the implementation of the state youth policy in the Republic of Uzbekistan” dated February 6, 2014 was a logical continuation of conducted gradual reforms in the years of independence and has been marked as the beginning of a new phase of work, Jahon news agency reported.

In addition, it is reported that a special state program has been developed annually in Uzbekistan under the proclamation of the social direction of the current year. Particularly, 2008 was declared the Year of Youth, 2010 – Year of harmoniously developed generation, 2014 – Year of a healthy child, and the current 2016 – Year of a healthy mother and child. “This fact testifies to the colossal activities undertaken towards creating a brighter future for the younger generation. The scale and depth of the endeavors carried out in Uzbekistan is evidenced by the fact that more than 7 trillion soums has been allocated for the realization of the State program “Year of a healthy mother and child”, – the document says.

It is also noted that our country took the highest worldwide recognition for the national model of continuous education and upbringing of harmoniously developed young generation. State educational standards, curricula and textbooks meeting the requirements of time have been developed and introduced taking into account international experience for all stages of education. Advanced educational technology and interactive teaching methods are widely used.

During the years of independence a new type of education – the professional colleges and academic lyceums has been created which has no analogues in the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States. This work allowed forming a unique unified system of lifelong learning-research education oriented in the training of highly qualified, competitive specialists for all branches of economy and social sphere, providing spiritual and moral education, and comprehensive creative development of young people.

However, the document states that thousands of new jobs are created every year in the country, including through the development of small business and private entrepreneurship which are increasingly involved youth. Only last year in Uzbekistan 990 400 jobs were created and more than 90 percent of young professionals have been employed. The high productivity of work in this area also provides an expanding social partnership between public authorities and management bodies and public entities, including the Women’s Committee of Uzbekistan, Public Youth Movement “Kamolot”, Public Charity Fund “Mahalla”, the International Non-Governmental Charitable Foundation “Sog’lom avlod uchun”, Presidential Foundation of the Republic of Uzbekistan “Istedod” and others.

It was also indicated in the material that the large-scale work on the development of children’s sport helps young generation to upbring physically healthy and spiritually mature personalities. “In particular, if in 2005 30 percent of children and adolescents including in rural areas – 29 percent aged 6 to 15 years went in for sports in Uzbekistan, in 2015 these figures reached 57.2 percent and 56 percent respectively. Through the development of this sphere in Uzbekistan and fixing healthy lifestyles athletes achieve great success in the international arenas”- said in the document.

Separately, it emphasizes that the country also attaches great attention to supporting young families. In accordance with the Presidential Decree “On additional measures to materially and morally support young families” they were provided long-term easy home credits. Over the past two years, 57 high-rise buildings of “Kamolot” for 2080 apartments have been built and handed over to young families, thousands of young boys and girls are given preferential mortgage and consumer loans.

“In general, – says the document – such a complex, multi-faceted support is provided to all young people in Uzbekistan”. In addition, it was also quoted the words of our President on that young people – not only the hope and future of the state, but also – the decisive force of today and tomorrow.

Mosud Mannan: “We Have Achieved Distinctive Results”

Twenty years ago, The People’s Republic of Bangladesh opened its diplomatic mission in Tashkent. In an interview below, Ambassador Mosud Mannan provides a thumbnail sketch of relations between his country and Uzbekistan while emphasizing the achievements secured thus far.

mosud

Mr. Mannan, in one of your previous interviews you mentioned the Bangladeshi business community’s growing interest in ratcheting up cooperation with Uzbek partners. Has this interest led to any real project?

Due to well-established relationship between our countries, the bilateral relationship became more multi-faceted in recent years. In celebration of the anniversary of relations between Uzbekistan and Bangladesh, I am proud to state that our two countries have achieved distinctive results in trade, economy and business. In 2015, Bangladesh became number one buyer of Uzbek cotton, with 29% of the total amount. Also, there is a market for affordable, high-quality pharmaceuticals in Uzbekistan. It has already been agreed by respective parties to set up more than 7 seven JV pharmaceutical companies in Uzbekistan. Bangladesh has participated in pharmaceutical expos in Uzbekistan over the past few years, and interest has been shown by potential Uzbek partners.

During the three years of your work in Uzbekistan, you have probably gauged our country’s potential. Which areas of this relationship do you think should be intensified?

There is a great potential between the two countries to develop and intensify the relationship. Firstly, from our side we would like to have an overall increase in bilateral and political understanding between the two governments. Develop the diplomatic relations to a higher level by signing economic agreements, MOUs and trade contracts; facilitate political dialogues and direct foreign investment.

With regard to high-level contacts, the Minister of Commerce of Bangladesh is scheduled to visit Uzbekistan this summer. Moreover, our countries’ foreign ministries intend to hold political consultations. These activities will be followed by a visit of the Foreign Minister of Bangladesh to Tashkent to attend the ministerial meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

The tourism industry is another important sector. I have been to nearly all Uzbek cities and thoroughly enjoyed the beauty, rich historical background as well as the potential for development. Samarkand and Bukhara have a special place in the Bangladeshi imagination and I am confident that the spiraling minarets and turquoise domes of Uzbek mosques and madrassahs will capture the hearts of many Bangladeshi people, if promoted enthusiastically. This effort can be built upon through the signing of a MOU between the Tourism Ministries of our countries. Similarly, I believe that Bangladesh has the potential to be a fantastic travel destination for Uzbeks. Uzbeks are famous for their love of tea and they could indulge in a trip to the hills of Bangladesh’s Sylhet region, or take a short flight to our southern shore, to the cities of Chittagong and Cox’s Bazar, famous for its white sandy beaches and seafood cuisine. A number of Islamic shrines, monuments and places of interest dot Bangladesh’s landscape that could attract Uzbek tourists as well.

Academic collaboration between our two countries can also be enhanced, with the exchange of professors, students and technicians.

The existing bilateral relations are sure to strengthen further in the days ahead. Bоth the countries would continue to work together for peace, progress and stability of the world as well as prosperity and happiness of the two peoples.

Recently, your embassy hosted a reception on the occasion of Children’s Day, which is celebrated in your country in spring. What is your opinion of the rising generation of Uzbeks in the context of the “Year of Healthy Mother and Child” State Program adopted in our country?

As your Honorable President H.E. Mr. Islam Karimov underlines, the youth is the future of the country, its support and hope. The success of achieving the lofty goals depends on the way we bring it up. I am very glad that your country gives great attention to the improvement of the socio-political activity of the youth in your country, strengthening its material and moral support. In the Year of Healthy Mother and Child this scope has been substantially extended.

From my personal observations, as well as many of the indicators carried out during the years of independence, speaks about the high level of education among young people.

Uzbekistan boasts one of the world’s highest literacy rates. Young Uzbeks strive for quality education and acquire a profession, continuing self-improvement. They are very enthusiastic and have commitment to sciences. It speaks of the quality education system in Uzbekistan, the state system directed at the development of young people in education and sports. The sporting achievements and awards in international arenas show the interest and importance of sport and healthy life for the young generation of your Republic.

I also have noticed an increased level of knowledge of modern young people, especially among students of foreign languages, particularly English, Arabic, French and German. The same can be said about the ownership of a computer, with about half of the respondents using the internet for education purposes. The main qualities that younger generation connects with the concept of morality are honesty, good knowledge of history, the purity of soul, respect for national traditions, sense of national pride, modesty, religious tolerance, and rejection of extremism.

I wish the young generation of Uzbekistan success and luck in all their endeavors and I believe that with the current generation Uzbekistan will always develop and show impressive results in achieving goals to build a better and happier future.

sweep_change

Islom Zakirov, director of the National Center of Ministry of Public Education, told about this in the interview with Uzbekistan Today.

Today experts of MPE together with representatives of the Ministry of Finance actively discuss the plan to implement the task of developing new textbooks.

– First of all, we have to determine the quality of the pending changes. In particular, the specialists of our center believe that it is needed to improve education in terms of development of skills of application of educational material in practice in students and more active use in this process of information, communication and multimedia technologies. At the same time, we collect opinions of other experts, – Islam Zakirov told. – Second, we have to determine the schedule and progress of the plans.

The expert notes that implementation of the plans requires a comprehensive approach. First of all, it is needed to develop updated subject standards and programs, then to develop textbooks and manuals, and equally time-consuming and laborious work on training of teachers to work according to the new standards and programs. Perhaps, implementation of these measures will be accompanied by reequipment of schools with training equipment.

The specialist has also noted that development of new textbooks and teaching aids may begin earlier than the end of 2017, since it takes time to develop and test of new curricula.

Particular attention will be paid to compatibility of programs with curricula of secondary specialized vocational education, which should be harmonized with the school curricula.

Uzbekistan’s experience in the health sector clearly shows that the country is going in the right direction by strengthening the capacity of health workers in the field of maternal and child health at all levels, developing modern infrastructure for the provision of specialized and high-tech health care for mothers, children and adolescents.

Based on the foregoing, I am convinced that the announcement of 2016 “Year of healthy mother and child” will expand the scope of consistent work to strengthen nation’s gene pool.
