Tashkent has hosted the IX Congress of Ob­ste­tri­cians and Gyne­col­o­gists of Uzbek­istan, or­ga­nized by the Repub­li­can Spe­cial­ized Sci­en­tific and Prac­ti­cal Med­i­cal Cen­ter of Ob­stet­rics and Gyne­col­ogy. Spe­cial­ists from Rus­sia, Ger­many, Be­larus, Italy, Spain, Czech Repub­lic, Turkey, Is­rael, Mex­ico and Ukraine dis­cussed the main achieve­ments of the repub­lic in this di­rec­tion.

At present, in the health care sys­tem 205 in­sti­tu­tions are in­volved in pro­tec­tion of mother­hood and child­hood. The Repub­li­can Spe­cial­ized Sci­en­tific and Prac­ti­cal Med­i­cal Cen­ter for Ob­stet­rics and Gyne­col­ogy, the Repub­li­can Peri­na­tal Cen­ter, the Tashkent Med­i­cal Academy Clinic, 13 re­gional and 1 city peri­na­tal cen­ters are among them.

As is known, mod­ern vac­cines are used within the frame­work of the an­nual na­tional vac­ci­na­tion pro­gram. In par­tic­u­lar, start­ing from 2018 our coun­try will be­come one of the first coun­tries in the world that en­sure full cov­er­age of ado­les­cent girls with vac­ci­na­tion against pa­pil­lo­mavirus. This mea­sure will con­trib­ute to pre­vent can­cer among women, to pro­mote re­pro­duc­tive health.

Over the past time, on the ba­sis of pro­grams that em­body the idea “Healthy mother - healthy child,” large-scale ac­tiv­i­ties have been de­vel­oped and are be­ing im­ple­mented. Ac­cord­ing to the press ser­vice of the Min­istry of Health, if in 2017 in our coun­try for the pro­vi­sion of ma­ter­nity fa­cil­i­ties al­lo­cated $17 mil­lion, in 2018 that fig­ure is ex­pected to be $50 mil­lion. It should be noted that such new med­i­cal cen­ters as peri­na­tal, screen­ing, re­pro­duc­tive health, as well as their re­gional branches, oc­cupy an ev­er­stronger place in the health­care sys­tem of our coun­try.

Within the frame­work of the In­vest­ment Pro­gram for 2017, at a cost of 73.6 bil­lion soums, works on con­struc­tion, re­con­struc­tion and over­haul is car­ried out in in op­er­at­ing in the sys­tem of the Min­istry of Health 8 peri­na­tal cen­ters for 764 beds, ur­ban and district ma­ter­nity hospi­tals and chil­dren's hospi­tals for 961 beds.

- The re­forms im­ple­mented in the med­i­cal sphere of Uzbek­istan de­serve spe­cial at­ten­tion, - said Ger­man spe­cial­ist An­dreas Ebert. - Par­tic­i­pat­ing in the VIII Congress of Ob­ste­tri­cians and Gyne­col­o­gists of Uzbek­istan in 2013, I wit­nessed that in this short time the coun­try has de­vel­oped a sys­tem of spe­cial­ized and high-tech med­i­cal care in the field of gyne­col­ogy and neona­tol­ogy, new standards and clin­i­cal pro­to­cols have been in­tro­duced.

Ac­cord­ing to the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion, in Uzbek­istan, mor­tal­ity rates among moth­ers are the low­est in Cen­tral Asia. It is par­tic­u­larly en­cour­ag­ing that such re­sults were achieved by or­ga­ni­za­tion of pri­mary ob­stet­ric care not only in cities, but also in all re­gions and in re­mote ar­eas. The con­sis­tent application of high-tech meth­ods of surgery, di­ag­no­sis and treat­ment to pre­serve and re­store women's re­pro­duc­tive health plays an im­por­tant role in the fur­ther devel­op­ment of the sphere.

At the IX Congress of Ob­ste­tri­cians and Gyne­col­o­gists of Uzbek­istan, the sci­en­tif­i­cally val­i­dated na­tional model of mother­hood and child­hood pro­tec­tion, that proved its ef­fec­tive­ness over many years, as well as cur­rent sci­en­tific is­sues and forth­com­ing tasks in the field of ob­stet­rics, gyne­col­ogy and peri­na­tol­ogy were dis­cussed.

The event, which was held with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of in­ter­na­tional ex­perts, will con­trib­ute not only to in­crease of pro­fes­sional skills and the level of knowl­edge work­ing in the field of doc­tors, but also to fur­ther im­prove the qual­ity of med­i­cal care for preg­nant women, moth­ers and chil­dren, to pop­u­lar­ize and in­tro­duce sci­en­tific in­no­va­tions.
