Private clinics will take a more active part in the development of health care in the country and increase the level of medical care for the population. 
President Shavkat Mirziyoyev signed the Resolution "On Measures for Further Development of the Private Sector in Health Care". 
There is a cardinal expansion of the types of medical activities permitted for private medical organizations. From now the private sector will be able to take an active part in the development of such high-tech areas of healthcare as cardiosurgery, neurosurgery, microsurgery, oncology, endocrinology, cardiology, vascular, thoracic and abdominal surgery, urology and others, covering all types of medical activities. The state will retain a monopoly only in areas related to a high level of risk to the life, health and sanitary-epidemiological well-being of the population. 
It was determined that newly introduced high-tech methods of treatment and diagnostics in private medical organizations, especially involving surgical interventions, are allowed only with the availability of appropriate medical equipment, highly qualified medical personnel and strict observance of sanitary norms and rules. 
The Program of measures on further stimulation of development of private medical organizations was approved. The average annual ultimate number of employees of small businesses in the healthcare sector will be increased to 100 from 1 May. There is a "broad realization" of business entities engaged in providing medical services to the population, unused buildings, facilities and premises, especially state-owned property of liquidated health care institutions, at zero redemption value, with the new owner accepting investment and social obligations. 
In a month's time, it is planned to develop measures to expand the volume of purchasing and leasing of modern high-tech equipment to medical organizations by increasing the authorized capital of the specialized leasing company "Uzmedlizing", including by attracting foreign investors. 
Private medical organizations that provide paid medical services to the population (except for dental and cosmetic services), including organizations with the participation of foreign investors, are exempted until January 1, 2022 from payment of all types of taxes and mandatory deductions to state trust funds, as well as customs payments. Released funds will go not only to strengthen the material and technical base of clinics, but also to create conditions for free medical care for socially vulnerable categories of citizens in these clinics. 
Commercial banks are recommended to provide on a broad basis long-term preferential loans to private medical organizations for the purchase of modern medical equipment, including abroad, the formation of seed capital, the purchase of buildings and facilities for medical services, as well as consumer loans to the population for medical services in private organizations using modern information technologies, including on the basis of making payments by bank credit cards.
