On August 8, 2012 the Czech Ambassador to Mongolia V. Jilek together with the head of mission of the Czech “People in Need foundation” (a professional humanitarian organization focused on providing aid to crisis area and supporting adherence to human rights around the world) jointly handed two keys over to the provincial hospitals in Zavkhan and Bayankhongor next two mobile the off-road mobile clinics.
In the ceremony was also participated H.E. Ya. Sanjmyatav, member of the Great State Hural and former governor of Zavkhan province and other distinguished guests.
The project aims to increase the accessibility of quality health care in remote areas of western and southern Mongolia. The basic health care is relatively accessible even in rural areas. However, the rural population does not have access to specialists, modern diagnostic tools or to necessary care in case of acute emergency.
Six central hospitals will be provided with the off-road mobile clinics, which will be equipped with all necessary equipment and material. The mobile clinics will go around the districts in regular intervals and provide assistance to the smaller, not so well equipped or understaffed health centres. The mobile clinics will mainly provide diagnostic and prevention services and urgent health care. All key stakeholders consulted from village doctors to the representatives of Mongolian Ministry of Health agreed that this type of support is mostly needed. “People in Need” is implementing the project with financial support of the Czech government’s development assistance.
