Commending the organization’s activities, Ms. Sh.Ankhmaa showed willingness to cooperate in improving the preparedness of health care personnel and facilities in every district, carrying out a study to enhance the preparedness of educational institutions in Ulaanbaatar, assessing TV classes, making recommendations, and bringing the ‘Smog-Free Bayankhongor’ initiative to Ulaanbaatar.
Expressing full support for the proposals, UNICEF representative Alex Heikens undertook to expand cooperation between the two sides in education and health sectors.
