Healthy Child

The programme operates in: Gubkin, Zheleznogorsk, Stary Oskol, Novotroitsk
The Healthy Child project is an initiative of the tripartite agreements between Metalloinvest, and the regions and towns, in which the company operates.

The programme was launched to provide assistance to government bodies and local government in the establishment of an effective and comprehensive system of healthcare for preschool children, and to attract new knowledge and social technologies to inform work with children and their families. Support for health-saving projects is given on a grant basis. Under the terms of the grant contest, performance evaluation is based on the results of meeting requirements of Ready for Labor and Defense (GTO) Program and medical records showing children's health improvement.

Key achievements:

  • positive dynamics in children’s health at pre-school educational establishments;
  • a reduction in the incidence rate of severe respiratory infections;
  • an increase in parental trust of preschool childcare;
  • the establishment of partnerships with children’s health centres, local psychological centres, and children’s sports organisations;
  • thanks to the high take-up of child inoculations, there were no incidences of measles, diphtheria, epidemic parotitis, whooping cough, rubella, or flu.
