What are medical services in Tashkent like?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Tashkent, they replied...

"Medical services in Tashkent, are a mix of public and private healthcare facilities. The public healthcare system is funded by the government, but it often suffers from a lack of resources, outdated equipment, and insufficient staffing. The quality of care in public hospitals and clinics can be inconsistent, and patients may experience long wait times for appointments and treatments. On the other hand, private healthcare facilities in Tashkent offer a higher standard of care, with more modern equipment and better-trained medical staff. These facilities often cater to foreigners and expatriates, and many doctors and nurses speak English. However, private healthcare can be expensive, and not all services may be covered by insurance. Pharmacies are widely available in Tashkent, but the availability of specific medications can be limited, and counterfeit drugs are a concern. It is recommended that visitors bring a sufficient supply of any necessary medications with them when traveling to Uzbekistan. In case of emergencies, ambulance services are available, but response times can be slow, and the quality of care provided during transport may not meet Western standards. For serious medical issues, it is often recommended that patients seek treatment in neighboring countries with more advanced healthcare systems, such as Russia or Turkey. Overall, while basic medical services are available in Tashkent, the quality of care can be inconsistent, and travelers should take precautions to ensure they have access to necessary medications and appropriate healthcare coverage," remarked another expat in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
