On the International Migrants Day, December 18, the Red Crescent of Kyrgyzstan is using its services to help the most vulnerable internal and external migrants, returnees, and their families. Within the framework of the action, the mobile clinic of the Red Crescent of Kyrgyzstan will conduct a survey of residents of new buildings around the city of Bishkek. The doctors of the mobile complex will provide diagnostic services for the detection of HIV, tuberculosis, viral hepatitis and other infectious diseases, as well as advisory services.

The International Migrant Day was adopted on December 18, 1990 by the UN General Assembly within the framework of the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families. The decision to celebrate the International Migrant Day was made in connection with the fact that in recent years the number of migrants around the world has increased significantly. It was decided that further measures should be taken to ensure respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all migrants. The Red Crescent of Kyrgyzstan pays much attention to work with migrants and members of their families. Regular campaigns are conducted to inform foreign migrants about the opportunities for protecting their rights abroad in the framework of the project "Providing opportunities for migrants and returnees from migration in the Central Asian region to improve the quality of life and protect their dignity."

Also, thanks to the project "Improving the HIV / AIDS, STI and Viral Hepatitis Prevention Systems among Populations, Especially Vulnerable to These Infections, Including Migrants", an impressive work is carried out to identify and prevent infectious diseases among people most susceptible to migration. In addition to these projects, humanitarian assistance in the form of seasonal clothing and hygiene kits is provided on an ongoing basis to vulnerable migrant families.
