Uzbekistan

Our Work in Country

Scarce resources from an economy that remains heavily dependent on one agricultural commodity, cotton, limit access to basic health care for the country’s 29 million citizens.

 

Working with a local NGO, Americares supports a broad range of health care institutions throughout Uzbekistan. For example, support for a “health train” helps bring medical care to some of the most isolated communities. Aid provided by Americares reaches patients in hospitals, mother-child clinics, rehabilitation centers and orphanages, in addition to sponsorship of community-specific public health initiatives.  

 

Working in Uzbekistan since 1997.
