Health workers ask authorities to deal with city healthcare situation

The medical community of Kyrgyzstan appealed to the President of the country Almazbek Atambayev with a request to deal with the situation in the field of city health care. Aybar Sultangaziyev, chairman of the Public Council under the Ministry of Health, said this at a press conference in 24.kg news agency.

Earlier, the head of the Health Care Department Kubanychbek Kulbatyrov was accused of intimidation and blackmailing. Kulbatyrov himself linked the attacks against him to the reform of the system and intended to sue them. Later, a commission was set up in the Ministry of Health to check the activities of the department, and a working commission was also formed in Parliament.

At the beginning of March, Talantbek Batyraliev submitted to the City Hall the idea of ​​considering the job competence of the head of the Health Department Kubanychbek Kulbatyrov.

According to Aybar Sultangaziyev, the commission of the department confirmed the facts of violation of the Constitution and labor legislation by Kubanychbek Kulbatyrov with regard to the employees of the city healthcare system.

«The Commission recommended reviewing and assessing the job competence of the head of the department. Recommendation for dismissal was sent to the mayor’s office. However, as of today, no actions have been taken," Aybar Sultangaziyev said.
