“Check your child’s cholesterol!” Poland and Ukraine (2013 only) – the first mass screening study in Europe in this field.
“Ankle-Shoulder. Stop Strokes and Amputations! ” – over 2,000 people were tested.
In five preventive actions, a total of about 25,000 people in Poland and over 2,000 in Ukraine were tested free of charge.
23 people infected with HCV were saved; 300 people in Poland and about 200 in Ukraine were diagnosed with unconscious diabetes and were provided with medical care;
Nearly 1,000 people have been diagnosed with a serious risk of chronic kidney disease (PchN) and have received specialist care.
The aim of the social preventive actions of the “Złoty OTIS” Trust Award was to draw attention to new or neglected mass health problems and to popularize an effective way of solving them. Nobody in Poland undertook social preventive activities on such a scale, without using budgetary funds.
