For 2019, KZT 35 bn has been allocated for the purchase of new innovative equipment to combat cancer. This was reported by the director of the Kazakh Research Institute of Oncology and Radiology Dilyara Kaydarova at the forum "Innovations in healthcare" in the Nazarbayev Center, Kazpravda.kz reports. 

In addition, the concept of construction of a new oncology center in Astana includes the construction of proton therapy department. According to her, there are about 57 such centers worldwide, and such therapy is one of the methods of progressive treatment that is safe for patients.

Kaydarova stressed that most often this technique is used to treat brain cancer in children and cancer of the cornea of the eye.

As she noted, the most important indicator for the oncological service is the reduction in mortality. Over 10 years, the death rate from cancer has decreased by 1.5 times.

Also at the forum "Innovations in healthcare", the Health Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Yelzhan Birtanov said that there are changes in the system of care for cancer patients.

“We are rebuilding the entire system of oncological care. Today, there is a focus on early detection and diagnosis of cancer based on screening research, high-tech detection methods, including laboratory ones,” Birtanov noted.

It is worth noting that in Kazakhstan in 2018 about 15 thousand people died of cancer. At the same time, according to research data, Kazakhstanis suffer from breast cancer, lung cancer and colorectal cancer.
