Medical Train Begins Operation in Aktobe Region on June 17

From June 17 to June 28, the medical train project will visit seven stations in the Aktobe region, providing free medical and legal assistance. Since the beginning of May this year, the consultative-diagnostic train "Salamatty Kazakhstan" has been to the Mangystau and Atyrau regions. During this period, 14,202 Kazakhstani citizens, including 6,079 children, received free medical care, and legal assistance was provided 1,061 times. Medical and legal professionals will visit the residents of the villages Nogayty, Shubarkudyk, Karashokat, Begimbet, Kotyrtas, Mughalzhar, and Martok in the Aktobe region. Consultations are held from 09:00 to 18:00, with a lunch break from 13:00 to 14:00. An ID card is required for admission.

Medical professionals conduct minor surgeries if necessary and issue referrals for planned treatments. Mediators and lawyers provide advice on issues such as obtaining pension benefits, social payments, and special social assistance. The health caravan includes qualified doctors and assistants: therapists, surgeons, pediatricians, psychologists, neurologists, ultrasound specialists, general practitioners, radiologists, cardiologists, dentists, ophthalmologists, ENT specialists, oncologists, gynecologists, and urologists. Mediators and lawyers will try to resolve various labor and social disputes in court.

"In most remote villages, there are no hospitals, and not all residents can constantly travel to the district center. Moreover, this year many regions suffered from floods, creating additional difficulties. The medical train allows people to receive consultations from all specialists on-site. The train is equipped with the most modern medical equipment, and even minor surgeries are possible," noted Alfya Adieva, General Director of the "Samruk-Kazyna Trust" fund.

The train's schedule and complete information can be found on the websites sk-trust.kz, medpoezd.kz, and the project's social media pages. The project is implemented in cooperation with the National Commission for Women and Family-Demographic Policy under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Samruk-Kazyna Trust Social Projects Development Fund on behalf of the Samruk-Kazyna JSC group of companies, and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
