Chernobyl Sasakawa Health and Medical Cooperation Project

More than 200,000 children in Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia affected by the Chernobyl disaster were examined for the health effects of radiation during 1991-2001. Since 1998, SMHF is collaborating with EU, NCI (USA), WHO and 3 NIS governments to create a Chernobyl Tissue Bank. This will not only help the current sufferers for their diagnosis and treatment, but will also help us to know the health consequences, should similar accidents occur in the future.
