The Grodno doctors were first invited to share their experience with Kazakh colleagues in 2010. After hearing their seminars, the eastern doctors praised the level of the Grodno specialists’ expertise and an agreement was concluded with the Grodno Regional Clinical Perinatal Centre, to bring Belarusian doctors and nurses to Kazakhstan regularly.
Last year, Belarusian doctors visited five Kazakh cities, offering master classes and seminars and sharing experience on how best to help pregnant women and newborn babies. They also shared practical knowledge in the field of diagnostics and treatment of obstetrical pathology, including how to revive babies born with immediate problems. The Grodno doctors have given consultations to severely ill patients in Uralsk, Aktay, Atyrau, Taraz and Kyzylord, while participating in operations.
The Kazakhs have sent letters of gratitude to the Grodno Regional Clinical Perinatal Centre, noting the great professionalism of Belarusian specialists. As the medical establishment’s Head Doctor, Victor Liskovich, tells us, in 2012, the Centre is to liaise with Kazakhstani maternity homes. The country has already expressed its interest, with support promised from the Belarusian Embassy to Kazakhstan.
