Health Minister Talantbek Batyraliyev responded to Member of the Parliament Erkingul Imankojoeyva statement regarding the violations in the National Center of Oncology.
Earlier on December 19, MP Imankojoyeva suggested the Parliament to investigate the situation at the National Oncology Center, where patients are treated in unheated wards without windows, as she said.
The decision of the committee on budget and finance and the letter of the Ministry of Finance to the National Oncology Center supposed provision of additional funding in the amount of 38 million som ($645 thousand) at the expense of the Russian grant, the Health Minister said.
In 2013, 10 million som ($170 thousand) were allocated for acquisition of medical equipment. The money was fully implemented and necessary equipment was acquired.
"It was initially planned that the main building of the Center would be renovated, but after several complaints of children's parents, it was decided that the department of children's oncology would be renovated first," Batyraliyev said.
To date, the construction work on the separation of children's hematology and renovation of the top roof of the main building and the surgical operation unit have been completed, he explained.
Currently west side of the building is under construction and repair, and the works in the eastern side of the building have been started.
However, during the construction and renovation works, several defects were identified. As a result of these and other additions and changes, the cost of repair and construction works increased to 5 million 265 thousand som ($89 thousand).
“Considering the fact that money allocated by the Russian grant were fully implemented, we ask you to assist in resolving this issue and finalizing the work,” Batyraliyev said.
