The updated recommendations of the World Health Organization on the prevention and treatment of coronavirus infection and vaccination of citizens against the corresponding virus will be included in the curricula at the Turkmen State Medical University named after Myrat Garryev. It was reported by the electronic newspaper «Golden Age».
The educational programs will be developed by the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry and the WHO country office in Ashgabat. The topic was raised during the round table.
The event was attended by hospital staff, specialists from the State Sanitary and Epidemiological Service, as well as professors and teachers of the university. The curricula will cover undergraduate and postgraduate education. The process will be initiated in the new academic year.
It must be added that no cases of coronavirus infection have been officially registered in Turkmenistan to this day. In September last year, the Ministry of Health, together with UNDP and the World Bank, launched a 20 million dollars COVID-19 Response Project.
