Kyrgyzstan addresses global fight against Tuberculosis at UN Assembly

Kyrgyzstan’s Minister of Health, Alymkadyr Beishenaliev, played a vital role in the worldwide battle against tuberculosis by participating in a significant gathering at the UN General Assembly. This high-level assembly brought together an esteemed audience comprising prime ministers, health ministers, and dignitaries from over 130 nations, each resolutely reiterating their unwavering dedication to combatting tuberculosis.

Minister Beishenaliev took the opportunity to shed light on Kyrgyzstan’s substantial strides in this fight against tuberculosis and delineated the key focus areas.

Moreover, the Minister expressed deep-seated concern regarding the escalating prevalence of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, sounding a clarion call to the global community. His impassioned plea urged nations to invest robustly in innovative drugs and diagnostic methodologies, reflecting the imperative need for progressive solutions to combat this formidable global health challenge.
