Residents of border villages in Batken province undergo medical examinations in a mobile clinic

On May 1st, 2021, a “Kamaz 1” vehicle-based mobile clinic arrived in Batken province to carry out on-the-spot medical examinations and to provide necessary healthcare services to residents of border villages, affected during an armed confrontation at the Kyrgyz-Tajik border.

At present, specialists of the mobile clinic, including a general practitioner, an obstetrician-gynecologist and a lab technician, carried out medical examinations of all residents of border villages evacuated to Batken town and are continuing their work in Aktatyr village. As of May 8th, 2021, around 400 residents have been examined.

It should be reminded that the  “Kamaz” vehicle-based mobile clinic was delivered to Batken province in 2019, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic became operational only in October 2020. The clinic offers ultrasound examinations, colposcopy, rapid testing for hepatitis B, C, HIV, and syphilis.
