Civil G8 to the G8 leaders


Professors Orozaly Uzakov, the pro-rector of the Higher Medical School and Anes Zarifyan, the dean of the medicine department at the University of Kyrgyzstan, signed the list of the recommendations for the G8 leaders. The list was worked out at the NGO Forum CivilG8-2006? held in Moscow.
-Kyrgyzstan is not part of the G8. Why should we participate in this meeting then?, - I asked the professor Uzakov.
-This Forum is attended not only by the representatives of the G8 countries leaders and civil society representatives, but by the scientists, but by political leaders and public activists from more than 30 countries doctor Leonid Rochal, Victor Sadovnichy, the rector of Moscow State University, ex-world champion in Chess, Anatoly Karpov and others. As the presidents of the G8 consider the questions concerning the whole world: fight against international terrorism, mass annihilation weapons non-proliferation, energy security, human rights.
- What questions were discussed at your CivilG8-2006?.
- There are lots of urgent questions in the world. But the main one is how to decrease the threat of the infectious diseases. Today its the major danger for the world populations. Infections do not know boarders. So the civil forum prepared recommendations for the G8 leaders. The effectiveness of the infectious disease control depends on the correlated activities of the countries, on the accessibility of the qualified medical help, how much money is spent on the scientific researches, preventive measures, treatments. The number of people who can afford it is different worldwide. Though its quite high so that the problem will be still in the s\center of the attention. So the world community should give those people a chance to get treatments from such diseases as tuberculosis, HIV, hepatitis, poliomyelitis, malaria and birds flu.
- What exactly did you recommend to the leaders?
- As for birds flu, CivilG8 thinks that it is essential to create a complex international group of specialists in different fields to cooperate against this infection. There is also a need in international centers, international programs for the mutual scientific researches on the dangerous viruses origin, organizations that would produce effective medicine for them. All of this concern our Kyrgyzstan as well, as the epidemic situation is still bad.
