Project Duration: 3 years

Start Date: 15 Jan 2019       End Date: 14 Jan 2022

Aim of the project is to support the modernization, professionalization and internationalization of postgraduate training in the field of children care management in Central Asia (CA) Countries - Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan - in cooperation with HEI from Italy, Germany and Poland willing to share their expertise and experience in the fields of Pediatrics, Pediatric Surgery and Child Neuropsychiatry postgraduate training. It’s a joint project organised as a feasibility study to become, if successful, a structural project for a sustainable and long lasting improvement in the organisation of postgraduate medical training in CA countries, not only in paediatrics but possibly also in other fields of medical care.
By-product of the project will be to emphasise the importance of children care in the ongoing process of Health Care Reform in CA countries, thus contributing to reduce the infant mortality, through an updated approach to the modern techniques of neonatal and pediatric care, widely resorting on the tools made available by ICT.
Outputs will be new curricula and new training strategies devoted to an integrated, holistic care of the child, harmonised with those adopted in EU countries and aiming to achieve the same results. To offer a solid and sustainable basis on which to ground these results, state-of-the-art ICT teaching and teleconferencing systems will be provided to all partners, with on-the-job training. Project’s preparatory activities of situation analysis and paediatric facilities census will also provide Governmental authorities an invaluable tool, offering a sound basis on which to build any future project of intervention on the health system and manpower devoted to the care of children in CA Countries.
Ultimate impact will hopefully be a reduction in infant mortality and a substantial increase in life expectancy at birth for the populations of partner Countries, now living in average some ten years less than EU population.
