Ufa resident sold her house to buy equipment for health care social project
UFA, 22 February 2019. /Bashinform News Agency/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
Aigul Zagidullina, a resident of Ufa, is a diagnostician. Recently, a woman launched a social project "Express Diagnostics for All". In 2018, she won the contest "Mum — Entrepreneur".
“I believe that prevention is better than curing diseases. “Remote areas of the republic need modern diagnostics and correct diagnosis,” said Aigul. “I bought my own ambulance, equipped a trailer to it and drive around the Bashkir districts and examine people. The profitability of the project is proved — the payback is up to six months. ”
In order to purchase special diagnostic equipment, Aigul Zagidullina had to sell her house. The Ufa resident project allows examining up to 150 people a day, and scanning takes literally 20 minutes. After it, a preliminary diagnosis can be made and, if necessary, treatment can be started.
At the civil youth forum, the entrepreneur asked the Acting Head of Bashkiria, Radiy Khabirov, to pay attention to her social project and start cooperation with her.
“Tomorrow our Interim Minister of Health Maxim Zabelin will call you, ”clearly outlined the head of the republic. “You were right to start with remote areas since we will not be able to establish the rural health posts in each village. Therefore, it will be good if you become our partner".
