MOSCOW, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Health Ministry considers Crimea to be a perfect place for rehabilitation of TB patients, the Ministry’s experts told a news conference on Monday dedicated to World Tuberculosis Day.
Lyalya Gabbasova, a Russian health minister’s aide, said that Crimea was called a “union health resort” in Soviet days where people from all parts of the USSR came to spend their vacation and improve their health. The peninsula had a well-developed resort infrastructure.
“We should see what has been left of this old infrastructure and we are going to use it if it is possible,” Gabasova said, adding Crimea had unique climatic conditions for TB patients.
Tereza Kasayeva, the deputy head of department responsible for medical aid and health resorts, said that Crimea’s phthisiological service would develop along the same principles as in other parts of Russia.
“We are going to adapt it to Russian standards. Crimea has excellent conditions for treating subsided forms of tuberculosis,” Kazayeva stressed.
