Today, on November 30, the Head of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov delivered an Address to the deputies of the State Assembly - the Kurultay of the Republic.

"The scientists of our republic are known for their studies in the field of ophthalmology, surgical disciplines, advanced methods of restorative treatment and balneology, production of innovative medical materials. Our oncologists make progress working together with scientists from Japan under new targeted antitumor drugs development", he said.

"Now, more than 50 percent of those in need receive high-tech medical care in the republic, despite the fact that only a few years ago this figure did not reach 15 percent.
