Ivankiv Center

The IVANKIV CENTER serves a population of 11,000 people. This Center is closest to the nuclear plant and prior to Chernobyl, was completely agricultural. Land contamination is high. This town became a “tent city” and provided a base for “liquidators” working to put out the fire and clean up the Chernobyl site. Many of them never left Ivankiv and their subsequent health problems probably affect the community’s overall health status. The death rate here is three times the birth rate. About 70 adults and children visit the Center each day. There are no pre-school programs or facilities and medical services are very limited. The Center provides services to the local hospital and follow-up services when needed after discharge.
