Uzbekistan Today (English) - - SOCIAL ORBIT - El­dar Rakhmat­ul­laev

The draft law “On trans­plan­ta­tion of hu­man or­gans and tis­sues” is ac­tively dis­cussed in so­cial net­works, in so­ci­ety. The bill was de­vel­oped on the ini­tia­tive of the Min­istry of Health in in co­op­er­a­tion with the Cen­tral Coun­cil of the So­cial Demo­cratic Party of Uzbek­istan “Adolat” within the frame­work of the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Strat­egy of Ac­tions.

What is the pur­pose of this bill? Are do­mes­tic doc­tors ready to carry out com­pli­cated or­gan trans­plant op­er­a­tions?

This is­sue was ad­dressed dur­ing the roundtable dis­cus­sion at the Tashkent In­sti­tute for the Ad­vanced Train­ing of Doc­tors. The meet­ing was or­ga­nized by the Cen­tral Coun­cil of the SDP “Adolat”, the fac­tion of the party in the Leg­isla­tive Cham­ber of the Oliy Ma­jlis, the Min­istry of Health, and the Tashkent In­sti­tute for Ad­vanced Train­ing of Doc­tors. It was noted that the ab­sence of such a nor­ma­tive le­gal act is prov­ing to be a de­ter­rent to the de­vel­op­ment of the health-care sec­tor in Uzbek­istan.

“The draft law (bill) is aimed at the le­gal reg­u­la­tion of the is­sues of trans­plan­ta­tion of hu­man or­gans and tis­sues, the de­vel­op­ment of a clin­i­cal dis­ci­pline of trans­plan­tol­ogy in the coun­try,” - said mem­ber of this fac­tion, deputy of the Leg­isla­tive Cham­ber of Oliy Ma­jlis Muhar­ram Dadakhod­jaeva.

“Its adop­tion will cre­ate a le­gal ba­sis for the trans­plan­ta­tion of hu­man or­gans. De­vel­op­ers stud­ied for­eign prac­tices in this field, took into ac­count the rec­om­men­da­tions of the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion. Cur­rently, the bill is widely dis­cussed in med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions of the re­gions, med­i­cal uni­ver­si­ties.

The group of de­vel­op­ers of the bill in­cluded spe­cial­ists from the min­istries of health, in­ter­nal af­fairs, jus­tice and other in­ter­ested de­part­ments.”

“Around the world, kid­ney and liver trans­plant op­er­a­tions are com­monly per­formed,” - said Ulug­bek Yul­da­shev, chief trans­plan­tol­o­gist of the coun­try. “The pa­tients suf­fer­ing from kid­ney fail­ure have two ways out: ei­ther go for hemodial­y­sis, or de­cide on an or­gan trans­plant op­er­a­tion. The in­tro­duc­tion of such treat­ment in our coun­try re­quires spe­cial leg­isla­tive con­sol­i­da­tion (re­quire­ments) of the liv­ing or­gan do­na­tion. There­fore, the de­vel­op­ment and adop­tion of the rel­e­vant law is rather press­ing to­day.

There are qual­i­fied trans­plant spe­cial­ists in the coun­try in­volved in kid­ney and liver trans­plan­ta­tion. We will at­tract for­eign col­leagues for the ex­change (share) of ex­pe­ri­ence.
