It is located in the central and northern parts of Central Asia and occupies the space of 447,4 thousand km1, the population of 17039 thousand people (for January 1, 1983). Average population density 38,1 zhit. on 1 The capital — Tashkent (1949 thousand inhabitants, 1983). The ASSR, 12 areas, 158 districts, 120 cities and 87 settlements of city type are a part of the Uzbek SSR Karakalpak. In the republic along with such most ancient cities as Samarkand, Bukhara, Tashkent numbering more than 2 thousand years there are cities, origin to-rykh is directly connected with a victory of Great October socialist revolution; from 120 cities of the republic 101 it is created for years of the Soviet power. The most part of the territory — the plain, smaller — the foothills and mountains. In the republic the largest rivers of Central Asia — the Syr Darya and Amu Darya flow. Climate continental. The extreme southern part of the territory of the republic belongs to subtropical, and northern — to moderated to climatic zones.

More than 100 nationalities and nationalities live in the republic. The main population — Uzbeks (68,7%); the Russian — 10,8%, Tatars — 4,2%, Kazakhs — 4,0%, Tajiks — 3,9%, Karakalpaks — 1,9%, Koreans — 1,1%, etc.

In 1897 only 2% of the population of Uzbekistan were competent, in the middle of the 20th century. The Uzbek SSR became the republic of general literacy.

The Uzbek SSR — the advanced industrial and agrarian republic with the high-mechanized agriculture winning first place in the country on production of cotton (about 6 million t a year), silks, a kenaf, astrakhan fur, mechanical cotton pickers, the cotton-processing equipment, etc. The power industry, nonferrous metallurgy, coal, mining, chemical, gas, oil, easy, food and other industries gained broad development. Development of Mirzacho'l is in recent years complete, virgin lands of the Fergana Region, high rates conduct development of the Qarshi steppe. Thanks to it Uzbekistan turned into one of the largest rice and ovoshchebakhchevy regions of the country.

Demographic processes reflected extremely difficult situation of the population, low level of sanitary culture, the actual lack of medical aid in pre-revolutionary Uzbekistan. The general mortality reached to 30 — 35 for 1000 the population, the nursery — to 400 — 500 on 1000 been born that it was 65 — 70% higher, than in the central regions of Russia. Average life expectancy made 27-^ 30 years.

Increase in the material and spiritual standard of living of the population

after the victory of Great October socialist revolution, development of health care, the state measures for protection of motherhood and the childhood, improvement of labor and domestic conditions led to considerable decrease in the general mortality and increase in a natural increase of the population (tab. 1).

On indicators of an annual increase in population Uzbekistan takes the second place in the USSR.

natural smallpox, cholera, plague, malaria, a tick-borne encephalitis, a typhinia, a parasitic worm were not liquidated. Especially great success is achieved in elimination of malaria. Before Great October socialist revolution more than 80% of the population of certain counties of present Uzbekistan were struck with malaria, mortality from a cut, e.g., on the Tashkent County made to 170 for 1000 persons. In 1932 in the republic 717 thousand cases of malaria, in 1950 — apprx. 121 thousand were registered. Since 1961 malaria is almost liquidated. Considerably incidence of a paratyphoid-mi and other intestinal infections decreased. Great success and in decrease in incidence of tuberculosis is achieved.

Health care workforce. Created by works of great scientists-physicians Ibn-Sina, Ismail Dzhur-dani, Yusuf Tabiba, etc. east medicine reached high development and exerted noticeable impact on progress of world medical science. However could use its achievements generally feudal bayskaya verkhush

and clergy. To other population help was given by representatives of so-called traditional empirical medicine: bone-setters,

massage therapists, izvlekatel of a parasitic worm, sorcerers, etc. After accession of Central Asia to Russia the first appeared to lay down. institutions (1868), to-rye generally serviced military and officials.

So, total number of beds in 1981 increased in comparison with 1940 by 10 times, and pediatric — by 18 times, otorhinolaryngological — by 30,2 times, oncological — by 36,6 times etc. According to the resolution of the Central Committee of the CPSU and Council of ministers of the USSR «About measures

Construction of the largest medical complex at Tashkentskokhm comes to the end medical in-those on 2820 beds, with the educational audiences providing training more than 9 thousand students and interns. Construction of clinics of scientific research institute of tuberculosis, scientific research institute of obstetrics and gynecology, scientific research institute of medical parasitology, etc. is complete. Practically in all regional centers, in many cities are constructed large multi-profile-tsy.

Timely implementation in practice of health care of the latest methods and diagnostic aids and treatment is carried out according to recommendations of profile scientific research institutes and departments of medical institutes.

At clinics for women offices on prevention and treatment of female infertility, pathology of a climacteric, children's gynecology are organized. In maternity homes much attention is paid to nursing of newborns and especially premature children. Departments for premature births and for nursing of premature children are created. Since 1970 in Tashkent specialized obstetrical institutions for women with cardiovascular pathology, diseases of kidneys, Rh incompatibility, toxoplasmosis, tuberculosis, a viral hepatitis, etc. are organized. Similar chambers or departments at obstetrical institutions function in areas of the republic. In development of the specialized pediatric and obstetric and gynecologic help the big role belongs to profile departments of medical institutes, and also NIR opened in 1927! protection of motherhood and an infancy (since 1974 scientific research institute of obstetrics and gynecology). The big share of newborns in the large families (having more than 4 children) is characteristic of Uzbekistan. In 1950 in large families 33,1% of all newborns, and in 1978 — 38,4% were born.

All this causes certain features in the organization of medical aid to children.

In the region where before Great October socialist revolution the extent of a water supply system was estimated in only several kilometers, the sewer network actually was absent, and work on improvement of the inhabited places was carried out only in the territory where imperial officials lived, feudal bayskaya a top and clergy, no measures were taken for simplification of the hardest service conditions at the single industrial enterprises. For years of the Soviet power the network of collective-farm and state-farm water supply systems (only for years of the tenth five-years period in the village 3185 km of a water supply system are constructed) annually increases. A lot of work on improvement of the cities and kishlaks is carried out. Serious work was carried out by SES according to the prevention and reduction of negative effects of rapid development of the diversified industry of the republic and broad mechanization of agriculture. In the republic there are 15 toxicological, 16 physical. - chemical laboratories and departments and 17 — for definition of toxic chemicals. The St. 780 thousand laboratory and tool researches is annually carried out.

Some suggestions for improvement of methods of their diagnosis and treatment are developed, medicines from local raw materials are offered. Neuropathologists of the republic made a certain contribution to a problem of studying of inflammatory diseases of a brain. In the Uzbek scientific research institute of oncology and radiology complex therapy of cancer using a local and general hyperthermia, ultrasound, electromagnetic fields, laser radiation is carried out. Implementation in practice of results of researches of phthisiatricians of the republic promoted improvement of quality of activity of antitubercular network. Experiment of Uzbekistan on elimination and decrease in incidence of nek-ry parasitic diseases found application in a number of foreign countries. Scientists of the republic managed to receive highly effective polyvalent antivenene serums, and also serums against a sting of a spider of a karakurt, to-rye with success are used not only in the USSR, but also are exported to the countries of the Middle East. On the basis of wide use of results of scientific research of hygienists of the Uzbek SSR considerable work on environmental control, improvement of working conditions in the industry
