ON SEPTEMBER 21 , PRESIDENT KH. BATTULGA VISITS WESTERN REGIONAL DIAGNOSTIC AND TREATMENT CENTER (WRDTC) IN KHOVD
On September 21, President Kh. Battulga worked in Khovd aimag. During his working trip, the President visited the Western Regional Diagnostic and Treatment Center and held a meeting with its authorities. The Western Regional Diagnostic and Treatment Center has six surgical wards, 10 internal medicine wards, eight paraclinic wards, and one prevention center, employing 438 doctors and health workers and providing health care services to citizens of five aimags of the western region. With a purpose to improve the quality of its services, a total of 102 pieces of equipment of 58 types were provided in the framework of a joint project of governments of Mongolia and Belgium. Consequently, it became possible to reduce the number of people to go to Ulaanbaatar from the western region for treatment and diagnosis, and to provide quality medical services in the rural areas. However, the center’s authorities informed that it needs to expand the center, increase its capacity and staff and ensure constant capacity building to provide accessible medical services to the citizens of the five aimags.
