Scientist, academician of NAS and professor Toregeldy Sharmanov addressed a request to the Government and the Ministry of Health of Kazakhstan to restore sanitary and hygienic departments and continue training in this direction, Kazpravda.kz correspondent reports.

"To combat the next wave of pandemic and prevent future pandemic threats, we need a comprehensive, differentiated and targeted approach to anti-epidemic measures. This requires a trained qualified staff of sanitary doctors, hygienists and field epidemiologists. I emphasize the word - sanitary. There used to be in our universities a department of sanitary and hygiene. For some inexplicable reason and in order to optimize education, everything was closed down. We do not have sanitary doctors. It is necessary to restore the Sanitary and Hygienic department. I express the state of the population in these critical conditions. The lost must be restored, "Sharmanov told the International Scientific and Practical Conference "The Role of Primary Health Care in Combating COVID-19".

In addition, he said, there should be an alternative, a model based on alliance of PHC with patients.

"Such an alliance will effectively prevent disease and ensure a long and high-quality life of citizens. By developing a long and effective health care system, it is possible to create ample opportunities to improve the quality of people’s life," the scientist concluded.

The International Scientific and Practical Conference "The Role of Primary Health Care in Combating COVID-19", held in Almaty, is timed to the 90th anniversary of Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Kazakhstan Toregeldy Sharmanov and the 90th anniversary of the Kazakh National Medical University named after S.D. Asfendiyarov.
