Uzbekistan – Germany cooperation has a multifaceted nature. Various joint projects are being implemented, one of which is to launch the first phase of the German Oncology Clinic in Uzbekistan in 2020.
CEO of OPASCA and OPASCA German Oncology Solutions, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Alexey Sverdlov told the correspondent of Uzbekistan National News Agency about the new project.
German experience to be applied in UzbekistanAlexey Sverdlov was born in Tashkent. At the age of 14, he moved with his parents to Germany, where he graduated from a technical gymnasium, the University of Mannheim, defended his thesis “Pattern recognition system in robotics” at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
Alexey Lvovich noted that, on the eve of the official visit of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev to the Federal Republic of Germany, an agreement was signed between the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Uzbekistan and OPASCA GmbH. The objective of the agreements reached is to use the German experience and standards in the medical field in Uzbekistan, in particular, in oncology. An action plan has been developed, which is maintained at the federal level in Germany. Active implementation work is carried out, during which amendments are introduced to improve the project. For example, it was originally decided to build a large center specializing exclusively in radiation therapy, and then amendments were introduced: it is necessary to cover all aspects of cancer treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy and immunotherapy, as well as high-tech diagnostics and, of course, rehabilitation. It is planned to begin construction of an oncology clinic in 2020 in Tashkent region.
The CEO of OPASCA emphasized that surgery and chemotherapy are well developed in Uzbekistan, it is necessary to improve radiation oncology, and this requires considerable investment and experience. If to add the professionalism of specialists to this, then all gaps will be eliminated soon. Moreover, the implementation of the new project will contribute to further development of medicine in Uzbekistan.
“Cancer is certainly a dangerous disease, but not a tragedy. Thanks to a reliable German healthcare system, cancer is treated and cured. In the early stages, up to 90 percent of children and up to 70 percent of adults can be cured”, – says Alexey Lvovich.
OPASCA German Oncology Solutions offered internships at leading German clinics. In addition, it is planned to open “Radiation Therapy” traineeship and “Medical Physics” magistracy specialization at Uzbekistan universities with an internship at the University Hospital Mannheim. The company has already started preparing personnel for a new oncology clinic. Negotiations are held with German experts who are ready to work in Uzbekistan.
Alexey Sverdlov informed that representatives of the delegation from Germany will present ten key reports (50 in total) at the Central Asian Radiation Oncology Congress CARO 2019. A separate section “Medical Physics” will operate within the framework of the congress.
