At present, on­co­log­i­cal clin­ics in all re­gions of the coun­try have been trans­formed into branches of the Repub­li­can Can­cer Cen­ter. The ex­ist­ing build­ings were re­con­structed or over­hauled. In the Syrdarya, Jiz­zakh, Navoi re­gions, new build­ings of the branches were built.

The Cen­ter for Can­cer Pre­ven­tion has been es­tab­lished to con­duct screen­ing sur­veys, form a uni­fied in­for­ma­tion base for can­cer pa­tients, main­tain med­i­cal sta­tis­tics, and im­prove the work on the pre­ven­tion of can­cer.

- Ac­cord­ing to avail­able data, 30% of cases of can­cer are de­tected as a re­sult of pre­ven­tive work, - said the di­rec­tor of the cen­ter M. Til­lashaikhov. - At the present time, a ver­ti­cal sys­tem of on­co­log­i­cal ser­vice has been cre­ated, in ru­ral med­i­cal units and fam­ily clin­ics by gen­eral prac­ti­tion­ers, pa­tients with sus­pected on­co­log­i­cal dis­eases are sent to re­gional branches. The num­ber of pa­tients who come to the cap­i­tal for ex­am­i­na­tion and treat­ment has re­duced. Last year, 6,700 pa­tients were ex­am­ined. On the ground, 218 sur­gi­cal op­er­a­tions were per­formed.

In the cur­rent year, on the ba­sis of the Pres­i­dent’s de­cree, $ 5.5 mil­lion was al­lo­cated for drug pro­vi­sion of on­co­log­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions.
