20 Ar­ti­fi­cial Kid­ney Cen­ters to Boost Med­i­cal Ser­vices

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - KALEIDOSCOPE -

Within the frame­work of the In­ter­na­tional In­vest­ment Fo­rum held in the Jiz­zakh re­gion, the Min­istry of Health of Uzbek­istan inked an agree­ment on co­op­er­a­tion with the renowned Ger­man com­pany VAMs GmbH. The cer­e­mony of sign­ing the doc­u­ment took place with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the Min­is­ter of Health Alisher Shad­manov and the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of the com­pany Is­rail Itzhakov. The pur­pose of this co­op­er­a­tion is the im­ple­men­ta­tion of an in­vest­ment project in the field of nephro­logic and hemodial­y­sis as­sis­tance to the pop­u­la­tion of our coun­try.

It is worth not­ing that chronic re­nal fail­ure is a de­crease in kid­ney func­tion. Treatment of such pa­tients in the ter­mi­nal stage is car­ried out by only two meth­ods: pro­gram hemodial­y­sis or peri­toneal dial­y­sis and kid­ney trans­plan­ta­tion. Hemodial­y­sis is a pro­ce­dure that takes on the main func­tion of the kid­neys – pu­rifi­ca­tion of blood from meta­bolic prod­ucts. In Uzbek­istan, about 2,600 pa­tients are in the ter­mi­nal stage of re­nal fail­ure, and for each of them the avail­abil­ity of hemodial­y­sis is im­por­tant.

Within the frame­work of the above-men­tioned co­op­er­a­tion, it is en­vis­aged to at­tract pri­vate in­vest­ments into the health­care sys­tem of the nation, to cre­ate an in­dus­trial com­plex for the pro­duc­tion of med­i­cal goods and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal prod­ucts in the field of nephrol­ogy. The ex­ist­ing hemodial­y­sis units will be mod­ern­ized in the med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions of our coun­try and a com­plete ren­o­va­tion of their med­i­cal equip­ment fleet will be car­ried out. On the prin­ci­ples of pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship there will be up to 20 new med­i­cal clin­ics for hemodial­y­sis. As a pi­lot project, it is planned to open an in­ter­dis­trict hemodial­y­sis cen­ter in the city of Jiz­zakh in 2019. A plant will also be built to pro­duce med­i­cal ma­te­ri­als for hemodial­y­sis.

The in­tended vol­ume of in­vest­ments un­der this agree­ment is $ 27 mil­lion in the pe­riod un­til 2022.
