The World Bank will allocate a $ 100 million loan to improve the emergency medical care system in Uzbekistan

The Board of Executive Directors of the World Bank on April 25 approved a project to improve the emergency medical care (EMC) system in Uzbekistan, the bank's press service reported. The funding will be provided through a loan from the International Development Association (WB structure) of $ 100 million.

Within the framework of the project, integrated dispatch centers will be created in 12 regions of Uzbekistan and in Tashkent, which will be responsible for handling calls, coordinating traffic of EMC vehicles, and also monitoring the activities of their teams. The dispatch centers will be of great importance for the effective use of the resources of the EMC system. Their main element will be a unified automated control and communication system that controls the distribution and availability of resources for a quick and effective response to cases requiring EMC.

The project will allocate funds for upgrading the skills of doctors and nurses in the EMC system in order to attract a greater number of medical workers in this area. About 60 modern EMC vehicles will be purchased for distribution among hospitals throughout the country, as well as the necessary equipment to assist patients with various injuries in urgent and emergency cases.
Reducing the response time to treatment, modern equipment and upgrading the skills of health workers should help reduce the mortality and health consequences of patients, and increase the confidence of Uzbek citizens in the quality of EMC services.

According to Hideki Mori, the head of the World Bank Office in Uzbekistan, thanks to the project, the improved EMC system will be able to provide qualified assistance to about 6 million patients a year.
