XVIII Conference of Oncologists of Uzbekistan
On September 24-25 of this year, the XVIII scientific and practical conference of oncologists of Uzbekistan “Modern technologies for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of urogenital tumors”was held in the city of Andijan.
It was attended by more than 50 delegates from different regions of the country in the offline format and about 1000 delegates online. The conference was also attended by delegates from the USA, South Korea, Denmark, India, Belarus, the Russian Federation, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan.
The conference was opened by the director of the Republican Center of Oncology and Radiology, Professor Tillyashaykhov M. N.: “As we can see, positive changes have been taking place in Uzbekistan recently. These changes do not bypass the field of oncology. Over the past four years, two resolutions of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan have been adopted aimed at improving the oncological service of Uzbekistan. Five years ago, only 5 radiation therapy devices were functioning in the country. This year, the state allocated the necessary funds to our center for the purchase of equipment in the amount of 2 linear accelerators, 11 gamma-therapeutic and 7 brachytherapy units. Currently, their number in our country has reached 25. Now, the provision of modern chemotherapeutic drugs by the state has reached 85-90% in all oncological institutions of our Republic, five years ago, the provision of chemotherapeutic drugs was 12-15%. It is also planned to build a new, modern building of the Republican Specialized Scientific and Practical Medical Center of Oncology and Radiology, designed for 650 inpatient and 100 outpatient beds.
Sofia Mikaelson, Executive Director of the American-Eurasian Alliance, AESA (USA): “I am very sorry that I could not join you personally due to the pandemic. The American-Eurasian Cancer Alliance is a partnership between the leading cancer centers of the United States and the CIS countries. The American-Eurasian Cancer Alliance started its work in Central Asia in 2015.I must admit that there have been noticeable changes in the field of oncology in Uzbekistan. I am very happy to position these changes on the Alliance’s website, to work in close cooperation with the scientific secretariat of the cancer center, where we publish special news about what is happening in Uzbekistan. However, at this stage, I am leading a project in the field of oncogynecology with my colleague and partner, head of the department of tumors of the reproductive system of women of the Republican Specialized Scientific and Practical Medical Center of Oncology and Radiology Nargiza Zahirova. This partnership also unites the international Oncogynecological Association. We have already achieved considerable success, and I express my hope for the expansion of this project. On the territory of the Russian Federation, the Alliance’s partner is the N. N. Blokhin Cancer Center, and I am glad that all my friends and colleagues from the cancer center are part of your XVIII scientific and practical conference. I really hope that I will be able to personally attend the next XIX scientific and practical conference.”
