Mar 29, 2021

Uzbekistan – On the initiative of Lola Tillyaeva’s You Are Not Alone Foundation, in-depth medical examinations of children from Mercy Homes and SOS Children’s Villages have been undertaken across Uzbekistan. These medical examinations are carried out by the Foundation annually with the support of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Public Education of Uzbekistan. In 2021, child examinations are also timed to coincide with the Year of Supporting Youth and Strengthening a Healthy Population.

Children underwent a comprehensive examination of all organs and body systems including any necessary laboratory analyses. This medical initiative is carried out with the aim of preventing and detecting diseases early in children. If any medical issues are detected, children will undergo appropriate treatment and rehabilitation.
