Felicity (Saadet) Party Konya Deputy Abdulkadir Karaduman has submitted a law proposal for the establishment of the Turkish Health National Institute of Microbiology. In Karaduman's 10-point law proposal, he envisages the establishment of the Turkish Hygiene National Microbiology Institute instead of the Presidency of the Refik Saydam Hygiene Institute, which was closed by the AKP in 2011.


The importance of the Presidency of Refik Saydam Hygiene Institute, which was closed by the AKP in 2011 after the Covid-19 affected the world, was once again understood. While many countries were developing vaccines against the coronavirus in this process, Turkey had to follow this process far behind. Saadet Party Konya Deputy Abdulkadir Karaduman submitted a law proposal to the Presidency of the Turkish Grand National Assembly for the establishment of the National Institute of Hygiene Microbiology. In the 10-point law proposal submitted by Karaduman, it is envisaged that the institute will consist of 11 members, including the president.


In the bill reminding that Turkey sent typhus vaccine to many countries during World War II, and that vaccine was sent to China for cholera epidemic in 1940, "Unfortunately, since it closed its original establishment in this field, it has become a 100 percent importer. Our country, which exports vaccines, has achieved significant success in this field, and has a strategic position in terms of health security, has unfortunately become a vaccine importer in the course of time. Today, it is a market for manufacturers. With the Covid-19 outbreak, we have actually experienced how important institutions, national health industry and institutes are, with a bitter cost. The lack of an institute working against epidemics and health problems in the past has revealed a serious deficiency in our health system during the Covid-19 epidemic," it was stated.


In the bill, in which it was stated that Turkey, which had exported vaccines to China until yesterday, had to purchase vaccines from China of dubious reliability and uncertain effect, the following was noted:
"The fact that a domestic vaccine or medicine has not been produced in the 18-month period since the beginning of the epidemic shows that there is a serious gap and need in this field. With this bill, it is aimed to establish an institution in our country where vaccine, serum, drug and microbiology studies will be carried out actively, and medical, scientific and technological development studies will be coordinated and carried out with domestic and national resources."
