United States donates $902,000 worth of laboratory equipment and supplies to Uzbekistan

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has donated $902,000 worth of medical and laboratory equipment and supplies to Uzbekistan’s Ministry of Health.

According to the U.S. Embassy in Uzbekistan, the donated items will allow the country to conduct 25,000 COVID-19 tests, using advanced Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) equipment. This technology detects the presence of viral DNA, which is present in the body before a person is symptomatic, enabling public health authorities to isolate the patient very early and break the chain of transmission, vital to ending the pandemic.

CDC has a long history of collaboration with governments in Central Asia on public health issues. The US public health agency opened its first office in Almaty in 1995 and today has offices in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan. CDC works with each Ministry of Health to strengthen local laboratory, disease surveillance, and workforce capacity so that the countries can better prevent, detect and respond to disease outbreaks.
