Uzbekistan has managed to preserve the landscape of medical centers and hospitals established back in Soviet times. Along with this, many new modern medical facilities have been opened, especially in Tashkent. In addition, there is a significant growth in the population of Uzbekistan. The population of the country exceeded 35 million people.Significant funds are now being allocated from the state budget and from international donors to open new medical institutions, equip them with modern equipment and re-equip the former facilities.

In the near future Uzbek manufacturers are unlikely to close the gap in the pharmaceutical industry due to the technical complexity of organizing new production of modern high-tech equipment and the need for substantial costs for this. New technological equipment for modern hospitals and medical facilities is mainly imported from European countries, the USA, Japan, Korea, Russia and China.
