Three portable X-ray machines were delivered to Tajkistan to take X-rays in mountainous conditions, reported the press center of the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of the Population.

Modern devices can play an important role in the detection and treatment of tuberculosis.

The equipment was donated by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to the Republican Center for the Protection of the Population.

Deputy Minister thanked USAID for its support, especially in the field of diagnosis and prevention of tuberculosis in the country.

USAID Central Asia TB Project Coordinator Khuriya Khisomova during the training noted that today due to the efforts of the government and the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of the Population, the number of cases of tuberculosis in Tajikistan is decreasing compared to previous years.

“Tuberculosis is curable, the main reasons for its spread are low awareness about the disease, untimely referral of patients to medical institutions, and the stereotypical idea of the disease,” she said.
