The Kupava van is 14m in length, plus its MAZ cabin. The reliable ‘duet’ is now ready to serve the region, bringing highly skilled medical aid to remote areas, at a cost of over Br4 billion.


Yuri Derkach, who heads Public Health Services Department for the Vitebsk Regional Executive Committee, notes that a network of medical institutions have helped fund the innovation, thanks to growing revenue from medical service exports. He explains, “Over the six months, the mobile medical centre will travel all over the Vitebsk Region, providing examinations for women, to help diagnose oncological diseases, including breast cancer (which is widespread today). All those living within the border regions of the Russian Federation will receive attention and, thanks to expanded export services, the mobile clinic will pay for itself within three years.”


Vladimir Orekhva, Chief Doctor of Vitebsk’s Regional Diagnostic Centre, tells us that the first mobile screenings have already taken place, in the Lepel District. Lists of patients were compiled in advance, saving them unnecessary journeys to Vitebsk.

The mobile medical complex has its own laboratory, ultrasound-room, gynaecology room, mammography room and registration office. It can examine 60-80 people daily and is targeting those who might otherwise not make an arduous journey to an inter-regional centre (the only such places to have the latest equipment for conducting mammograms).
