Medical train provides services in Shetpe

This year, the medical train "Salamatty Kazakhstan" which embarked on its journey on the Day of Unity of the People of Kazakhstan, is currently providing free services to residents of Shetpe station.

After stops at Ustyurt and Oporna stations in the Mangistau region until May 26, the train will head to the flood-affected Atyrau region, with its first stop in the city of Kulsary.

The train's team comprises 40 specialists, including medical workers, mediators, and lawyers. When necessary, specialists perform minor surgeries and refer patients for planned treatments. Mediators and lawyers provide consultations to the population on pre-trial dispute resolution, obtaining pensions and social benefits, as well as targeted social assistance.

The medical train accepts residents daily from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM and provides free services.

Since the start of the train's operation, medical workers have examined over 5,000 residents at Turys, Sam, Sayotes, Ozen, Bolashak, Zhetybay, Karakiya, and Shetpe stations, including 2,100 children. Patients have visited therapists, surgeons, neurologists, urologists, gynecologists, psychologists, and pediatricians, undergoing X-rays, ultrasound examinations, and electrocardiograms.

During the consultations of mediators and lawyers, special attention was given to mothers with many children, as well as women raising children with disabilities and those in difficult life situations. Transportation of residents from remote villages to the train was organized with the assistance of regional commissions on women's affairs and family-demographic policy. The involvement of village and settlement akims (mayors) in addressing urgent issues was ensured, and conditions were created for waiting in line.

As a result, by May 21, approximately 1,000 applications had been received (826 by mediators and 153 by lawyers). At one of the Mangistau stations, parties with disagreements reached a mediation agreement with the assistance of the train specialist, preventing the initiation of criminal proceedings. In the context of women's rights, it was revealed that many mothers in local areas could not obtain the "Kumis Alka" award and, accordingly, were not receiving benefits. This issue has also been taken under control, according to specialists.

The train's schedule and complete information can be found on the websites sk-trust.kz and medpoezd.kz, on the project's social media pages, or by calling 8 71 72 604599 and 8 775 142 66 82.

This social project is implemented based on the cooperation of the National Commission for Women and Family-Demographic Policy under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Samruk-Kazyna group of companies on behalf of the Samruk-Kazyna Trust Social Projects Development Fund, and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
