Shavkat Mirziyoyev: “It is necessary to work on personnel issues in the field of healthcare, drug provision and the development of private medicine”

These days, for the third time in six months, under the chairmanship of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev, a video conference was held dedicated to further improving the healthcare system, eliminating the existing problems and shortcomings in the sphere.

The meeting noted the recent positive changes in the elimination of shortcomings in the healthcare field.

Speaking about this, first of all, it should be noted that, within the implementation of the decision to improve primary health care, rural family polyclinics are organized on the basis of 793 rural health posts, 441 ambulance stations have been established, 658 buildings of rural medical units have been transferred to doctors as official housing .
Of the 1,200 ambulances that are scheduled to be delivered to the field during the current year, 646 have already been delivered to July 1, including 126 Damas vehicles in Tashkent, which is also an important practical step in this direction.

At the same time, the meeting in the spirit of critical analysis examined the existing shortcomings in the health sector. The unsatisfactory level of work of the patronage service was indicated. In this regard, the Cabinet of Ministers was instructed to prepare a provision that specifically defines the essence and main objectives of the activity of the patronage service.

“We must create such a system, in which not officials of the sphere, but the people themselves will objectively evaluate the activities of medical institutions, including the patronage service,” the Uzbek head said.

Another urgent problem discussed at the meeting was the shortage of medical personnel in the regions. In order to change the situation to the positive side, it was entrusted to develop a separate program to create the necessary conditions for medical workers, in particular, to provide them with affordable housing on the basis of preferential mortgage loans and the allocation of consumer loans to them.

The current state of development of another priority area - the private sector in the healthcare system of our country - has been thoroughly reviewed. It was noted that in accordance with the decree of the head of Uzbekistan of April 1 this year, restrictions on the activities of private medical institutions were abolished, they were granted a number of privileges, all types of high-tech operations were allowed. But despite the wide opportunities created, inactivity in the development of the sphere could be seen. The reasons of this situation were critically analyzed, and serious shortcomings in this issue indicated, especially in Sirdaryo, Jizzakh, Navoi, 
Kashkadarya regions and Karakalpakstan.

Local administrations were criticized for not paying enough attention to attracting investments in private medicine, supporting entrepreneurs wishing to establish a private medical institution, given instructions and instructions on developing the private sector in the health care system.
The meeting emphasized that the chairman of the High Council of the Republic of Karakalpakstan, heads of regional administrations and the city of Tashkent, heads of ministries and departments bear personal responsibility for the consistent continuation of reforms in the health care system and expansion of the network of private medical institutions. They will submit a report to the President on a quarterly basis.

It is entrusted to take measures to attract highly qualified doctors from abroad, to effectively use their knowledge and potential.

The meeting, based on specific examples and ongoing monitoring data, pointed to the serious problems that still exist in the areas of drug provision and pricing. The relevant organizations were instructed to develop mechanisms for the production of drugs with fixed prices, ensuring the continued availability of such drugs in pharmacies and issuing them on prescription.
