Better health care with 11 diagnostic functions

A diagnostic practice in Tajikistan upgrades its old equipment with a new multifunctional energy-efficient machine that allows a reduction of energy consumption by 40 per cent and the diagnosis of more illnesses.

Mr Ubaidulloev is the owner of a diagnostic practice and is one of the few qualified ultrasound diagnostic specialists in the district of Rasht in Tajikistan. His successful practice attracts clients from as far as 100km away.

To improve the quality of his services, Mr Ubaidulloev decided to invest in modern energy-efficient diagnostic equipment that can diagnose more illnesses.

The CLIMADAPT team performed the project analysis, assessed the potential of energy savings, financial-technical parameters and risks and approved an investment of US$ 20,000.

As a result Mr Ubaidulloev purchased a new machine that reduces energy consumption by 40 per cent. The new equipment is expected to save 380 kWh per year, improve efficiency and help the owner grow his business. The residents of the Rasht district also benefit from the advanced functionality of the new equipment that can help deliver improved healthcare and complex diagnostics such as elastography and echocardiography.
