Often times, due to a lack of understanding, funds, and accessibility to clinics, families who live in remote villages of Armenia are not able to address their children’s health issues early on, resulting in reoccurring illness and formation of diseases.
FCN’s health program strives to provide access to free annual health screenings to children in rural areas up to age 15. The screenings include a variety of examinations, which test measures such as vision, hearing, heart rate, and growth.
To provide necessary annual medical screenings by trained medical professionals to children living in rural areas of Armenia up to 15 years of age.
Free onsite annual monitoring of children’s growth and development, screening of common childhood illnesses and detecting early signs of chronic and infectious diseases in children.
Communicating the results of annual physical to local healthcare providers (if available), or kindergartens and school officials, for focused and effective treatment when necessary.
3,000 children and youth living in 16 villages in the Berd region of Tavush province have been provided with annual free health screenings every year from 2016 – 2019. By providing the state of the art equipment we have provided the opportunity for all the residents of Tavush’s Shamshadi region to have access to a better healthcare system. Residents are no longer required to travel to Yerevan for routine exams incurring travel costs and being away from home.
