Today our university hosted a round table on the topic of “Women’s Health”.
Women’s health is a very broad concept that includes not only body and body care, but also attentive attitude to the work of internal organs. The population size closely depends on the level of reproductive health. The health of people of fertile age, their ability to reproduce and safe motherhood are important aspects of public health.
A delegation from the French University of Côte d’Azur led by President of the University Emmanuel Tric and representatives of the Embassy of the French Republic headed by Ambassador Philippe Martinet arrived in Astana Medical University to discuss women’s health issues. The delegation from the university included: Jérôme Delotte – MD, Head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Nice Clinic, Associate Professor in the Department of Management and Education in Women’s Health at the University of the Cote d’Azur; Pierre Marty – Head of the Department of Parasitology and Mycology at the University of Nice Clinic; Erwan Paitel is the coordinator of the educational programs of the University of Cote d’Azur (Université Côte d’Azur, France).
Our university was represented by the heads of the chairs headed by the rector of NJSC “AMU” Dainius Pavalkis and the provost Filippo Bartoccioni: Yerbolat D. Dalenov – head of the chair of preventive medicine and nutrition with a course of sports medicine, MD, professor; Asiya K. Turgambaeva – Head of the Chair of Public Health No.1, PhD, Associate Professor; Serik S. Iskakov – Head of the Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology No.2, Ph.D.
The round table was opened by the Kazakhstan side. The speakers focused on such issues as prevention of women’s health, statistical data on women’s health in the Republic of Kazakhstan, modern methods of diagnosis and treatment used in practical health care in Astana and others.
“By changing our lifestyle, we can change the course of life itself. The concepts of preventive medicine make it possible to equip the population with tools for maintaining health and healing”, – said Professor Dalenov.
In turn, professors from the University of Côte d’Azur made presentations on women’s health, goals and objectives of interdisciplinary training and maximum access to treatment. According to Professor Jérôme Delotte, a woman’s health depends on her social status, her place in society, namely her sense of equality, since a woman should feel important to society and have the same opportunities and rights as a man.
Other important issues on the agenda included the possibility of developing international cooperation in the field of women’s health, as well as the possibility of academic mobility. The President of the Cote d’Azur University, Emanuel Trick, noted that the only thing that is necessary for students to study in France is not knowledge of English, but of French, since it is necessary for communication with patients, most of whom speak French.
