On June 14, the President Shavkat Mirziyoyev got acquainted with the presentation of projects in the field of public utilities and healthcare.
During his trips to the Tashkent Region and districts of the capital, as well as at the video conferencing on May 28, the President set a number of tasks to modernize utilities and improve the quality of service. In this regard, the responsible ministries and khokimiyats (governors’ and mayors’ offices) have developed proposals to improve the activities of management service companies.
In particular, there are 4,938 apartment buildings in the Tashkent Region, which are serviced by 36 service companies and 369 partnerships. More than half of the partnerships are facing severe problems; consumers are dissatisfied with the quality of services and the lack of timely approaches.
Such shortcomings in the region were harshly criticized at the event. It was instructed to revise the projects, establish systematic work and provide all conditions for the population.
The interregional cooperation is an integral part of the bilateral relations between our country and foreign states. In particular, the Tashkent Region and the Republic of Tatarstan (Russian Federation) collaborate closely. The presentation provides information on the projects of economic and investment cooperation between the two regions. The President has critically assessed the projects and pointed out the necessity for continuous expansion of the partnership.
A month ago, the President visited the Republican Specialized Scientific-Practical Medical Center of Oncology and Radiology and gave instructions to improve conditions in medical institutions in this area. On May 27, the President adopted a Decree «On Further Improving the System of Providing Haematological and Oncological Services to the Population».
In accordance with this document, a project for the construction and equipping of the new buildings for the Republican Medical Center of Oncology and Radiology was developed. More than 5 hectares of vacant territory of the clinic of the Tashkent Medical Academy were allocated for the new buildings. The advanced experience of foreign medical institutions was factored into the design.
The new center will be equipped with modern equipment for positron emission tomography, radioisotope studies, PCR analysis, magnetic resonance imaging and angiography. The new treatment methods, such as immunotherapy, targeted therapy, linear accelerator irradiation, stereotactic light therapy and radiosurgery will be introduced.
In accordance with the instructions of the President, the conditions and quality of treatment in oncological hospitals in all regions were studied. It was indicated that the Tashkent and Tashkent Regional branches of the Republican Center are the most popular among the population when seeking for oncological care. They accounted for about 37% of all patients.
In this regard, it was proposed to unite the capital city and Tashkent Regional branches into a single institution. As a result, the qualified specialists and sophisticated medical equipment will be located in one place, and the quality of treatment will improve.
It also provides information on plans for doctors training. For this purpose, a project to expand cooperation with the Pirogov Russian Medical University was developed. In the framework of cooperation, in the next two years, it is scheduled to send Uzbek students to study in Russia, and by the 2023/2024 academic year, establish a Tashkent branch of this university.
The President approved the projects and gave instructions for their completion.
The projects developed by the commercial banks were also considered at the presentation.
