We also carried out examinations and routine tests free for cancer and diabetes patients and pregnant women. In order to fight against the devastating effects of the COVID-19 outbreak, we developed a face shield produced by our scientists, and a portable breathing apparatus with replicators that enable the use of existing breathing devices in more than one patient. As part of our mission to build a healthy future, we have launched a free health insurance application for our Near East Family and Near East Preschool, Near East Primary School, and Near East College students. In addition, our university students under Social Security Foundation can get free service from our hospital. While we offer the most advanced diagnosis and treatment opportunities to our people at our hospital, we will continue to contribute to the development of health awareness with our Near Health magazine.
