Draft laws on transplantation and burial, which the Kyrgyz President returned to Parliament, will be redrafted.
Two consensus groups were formed today at a meeting of the Parliament on amendments to the Laws on transplantation of organs and (or) human tissues and on the burial and funeral to work out their agreed versions. The first group consists of the head of the Parliamentary Committee on Social Affairs, Education, Science, Culture and Health Care Sadyk Sher-Niyaz (Ata Meken), authorized representatives of the President and the government in the Parliament, the Minister of Health Care Talantbek Batyraliev. The group on the second bill includes the Minister of Finance Adylbek Kasymaliev.
Regarding the amendments to the Law on transplantation of organs and (or) human tissues, the head of state supported the expansion of citizens' access to timely and specialized medical care in the field of transplantation. Nevertheless, he believes that "granting private health care organizations the right in certain cases to interfere in this area should be clearly and comprehensively regulated in terms of the protection of citizens."
He suggested the deputies to revise the amendments in terms of expansion of government authority in the regulation of organ transplants. The head of the Health Care Ministry and the relevant committee of Parliament have agreed with him.
