Mongolia: Recognition for Outstanding Project Contribution

2013-09-16

Our member company EPOS received a certificate for its outstanding contribution to the MCA-Mongolia Health Project on Prevention and Control of Non-communicable Disease and Injuries (NCDIs). The certificate was received last week in Mongolia by Patrick Krause, EPOS Deputy Managing Director, during closure ceremonies overseen by the U.S. Government’s Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Senior Advisor Cassandra Butts to celebrate overall successes of Mongolia’s $285 million compact with MCC.

The NCDI project, one of six key projects within the compact, represented a five-year $39.1 million investment targeting Mongolians between the ages of 15 – 64 to adopt behaviours that reduce non-communicable diseases and injuries.

The project also undertook activities improving medical treatment and control of non-communicable diseases and injuries - including cardiovascular diseases (hypertension, stroke, heart attack), Type 2 diabetes, breast and cervical cancer, and injuries related to road traffic accidents - through (a) increased awareness of risk factors, (b) early detection, and (c) increased access to efficient interventions .
