Due to the events in the east, Transcarpathia, as well as all of Ukraine, faced the growing risk of tuberculosis among IDPs. To discuss this problem, an interagency meeting under the chairmanship of the Deputy Head - the Head of Staff of the Regional State Administration Oleksandr Petik was held at the RSA. Today, the number of internally displaced persons in Transcarpathian region is about four thousand people who, given the tough epidemiological situation with tuberculosis in Ukraine and Transcarpathia, are in risk groups.

 - Each relevant service of the region properly performs its function of early detection of tuberculosis and provides continuous treatment of patients who have come from other regions of Ukraine - O.Petik said. - However, the coordination of different structures should be strengthened.

Following the meeting, it was decided to improve the work in 2 major areas: on the organization of preventive examinations for tuberculosis and ensuring continuous treatment of IDP patients.
