What's New in Central Asia
New Training Opportunities in Uzbekistan Mean Better Care
In Uzbekistan, health care providers have to travel to the capital city to receive the proper training to care for patients with tuberculosis (TB). That’s why Project HOPE, under the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Tuberculous Control Program and in partnership with the Uzbekistan Ministry of Health and the Republican Scientific and Practical Medical Center of Tuberculosis and Pulmonology, recently launched the Center for Innovative Distance Training and Monitoring in Tashkent.
Working Together to Deliver Lifesaving Medicine in Uzbekistan
For cancer patients at the National Cancer Center in Tashkent, every day is a battle to survive their life threatening disease. Lifesaving medicine for patients with aggressive brain cancer can be hard to come by, but thanks to our partner, Merck & Co., Inc., and the government of Uzbekistan, we were able to offer some hope to patients with aggressive brain cancer.
HOPE for TB’s Youngest Victims
Every year, in Tajikistan, a country where the burden of TB is very high, as many as 600 children become ill with this infectious but curable disease. To receive treatment, the majority of these children have to be hospitalized and, as a result, separated from their families for months at a time. For these little patients, a hospital stay is a very long, lonely, and scary experience.
Project HOPE: Accelerating Toward TB Elimination
Project HOPE joined more than 2,000 TB professionals at the 48th Union World Conference on Lung Health in Guadalajara, Mexico.
