Ulaanbaatar, March 24, 2023 /MONTSAME/. Under the Law on Health and Medical Care and Services, a Working Group to draw up recommendations and conclusions on improving the quality and availability of medical care and services for mothers and infants was formed on May 10, 2022. The Head of the Working Group Ms. Anujin, and members Ms. Jargalmaa and Mr. Tuvaan visited the Development center for Disabled Children on March 22.

The Head of the Working Group Ms. Anujin said “We are working on developing a comprehensive curriculum for disabled children and it will be presented soon. The curriculum will allow disabled children to study in normal schools and socialize. Lack of inclusive policy leads disabled children to live in shadow. This is a crucial issue that should be considered as important as the National security issue. The Package Law on Social Insurance will be discussed at the State Great Khural’s spring session. So, any recommendations related to allowances for parents who take care of their disabled children at home are welcomed.”

The Development Center for Children with Disabilities, built with a grant from China, operates with the main mission of providing evidence based health, education, and social rehabilitation services to disabled children aged 0-18 in nine districts of the capital city and 21 aimags. The rehabilitation services include movement therapy, speech therapy, physical therapy, water therapy, food therapy, medical therapy and nursery care. The center is equipped with over 120 types of modern physical therapy tools and equipment.
