Working together

Training Tajik Doctors
Training Tajik Doctors

Since beginning it’s work IRODA has been committed to working with the Ministry of Health in Tajikistan to not only bring about change in the lives of individual children and families, but to also see changes in systems and services in Tajikistan.  In order to do this IRODA has formed partnerships both locally and internationally that have created opportunities for training within different sectors in Tajikistan.

In December IRODA was privileged to have a Neurologist from Australia visit.  IRODA worked with the Ministry of Health and through a US Embassy project to host a seminar for doctors at which Dr. Purdie was able to provide training on the management of seizures in children with autism and other individuals.    The seminar also provided the opportunity for IRODA to continue to build relationships with professionals working with the health system.  Important discussions were had on the need for early identification of autism and effective working relationships between doctors, families and service providers. 

IRODA is grateful for professionals from around the world who over the last 6 years have generously given their time and resources to bring about change in Tajikistan.  Significant changes have been made over these years in the lives of individuals, in societal attitudes, and within the health and education system in Tajikistan.  There continues to be much more to do however to see people with autism reaching their full potential as valued members of Tajik society.

Thank you for your partnership that is allowing this important work to continue.
