In 1905, the scientist received the Nobel Prize in medicine, “said Mollaeva. She further noted that tuberculosis remained the leading cause of mortality from infectious diseases in the world.

The development of tuberculosis is facilitated by poor nutrition, the consumption of toxic products (tobacco, alcohol, drugs), poor working and living conditions, and some chronic diseases.

Nevertheless, they continue to remain at a high level, there is an increase in the spread of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis and tuberculosis, combined with HIV infection. Therefore, work in this direction is ongoing.

Then Raisa Shakhsinova delivered a welcoming speech. “The theme of today’s conference is relevant for health care not only of our republic and country, but of the whole world. If we compare our health records with Russian ones, it is noticeable that they are lower, but there is a positive dynamics. We can only be concerned about the fact that during 2020 we were not able to fully carry out all the necessary preventive measures for certain reasons. Of course, the task of 2021 is to restore the volumes of preventive measures that we plan and ensure the early detection of tuberculosis, “said Shakhsinova.
