The needs of Zaporizhzhia Regional Children’s Anti-Tuberculosis Sanatorium

In 2016, the communal institution "Zaporozhye regional children's anti-tuberculosis sanatorium" closed due to emergency conditions. The building in which it is located was built in 1967 in the Shevchenko district along Chervonopolyanskaya street. At the expense of the regional budget, the roof and electrical wiring were repaired there. The reconstruction of the building was carried out at the expense of the German society GIZ.

“After its closure, the incidence gradually began to grow in the region. In 2019, the incidence rate of tuberculosis among children was 23.1 per 100 thousand of the population, which is almost 3 times higher than the average indicator (8.7) in Ukraine. For 9 months of 2020, it has become even larger - already 25.1! We got to the point where sick children who need to be hospitalized immediately are queuing up. Our task is to make sure that children do not stand in queues for health improvement and there is a modern sanatorium where children can be treated and have an interesting time, "commented the head of the Regional State Administration Vitaly Bogovin.

The department will be able to serve 120 children per year. The reception area has three wards with boxes, a children's playroom and 9 classrooms for children of different age groups, a bathroom for people with disabilities; a catering unit with modern technological equipment. On the second floor of the department there is a sleeping room for preschool children; a conference room where conferences, courses and trainings for medical personnel are planned; an assembly hall where children's parties are supposed to be held; a computer room and a physiotherapy room equipped with modern equipment.

The diagnostic center itself has 50 inpatient beds for the treatment of children with tuberculosis. With the opening of the sanatorium children's anti-tuberculosis department, 40 more beds for children will be added to the total volume. On the basis of the new department, children with tuberculosis will continue their treatment after the completion of the intensive phase of treatment. Children from foci of tuberculosis infection, who will receive chemoprophylaxis, and children with latent tuberculosis infection will be able to receive assistance.
