Uzbekistan Adopted Modernization Program For The Emergency Medical Care System

Friday, March 24, 2017 - 07:42

In Uzbekistan, the 2017-2021 Program for modernization of the emergency medical care system has been approved. It happened in accordance with the decree of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev “On measures aimed at further improvement of the emergency medical care system,” which was published on the website of the National Legislation Database. For the implementation of this program, there will be allocated funds in the amount of $70.6 million. In particular, this year the car park of the emergency medical care system will be updated with 1,200 units of specialized vehicles.


In accordance with the document, in the institutions related to the emergency medical care system, inpatient treatment is received by more than 600,000 patients annually; in addition, more than one million patients receive outpatient medical care every year. The ambulance services make more than seven million trips annually.


“The effectiveness of rendering emergency medical aid to the residents of the republic still does not meet the modern requirements. Also, the level of provision of medical services, medicines, qualified personnel, communication facilities and specialized motor vehicles related to emergency medical services remains insufficient. Due attention is not paid to the introduction into practice of modern mechanisms for managing, monitoring and coordinating the provision of urgent medical assistance to those in need. There is also no attention to the domestic scientific and practical developments related to the field of emergency medicine,” the decree reads.


In 2017-2020, it is planned to overhaul 240 facilities, and to carry out repairs at another 369 facilities.
