With President Hiroo Dohy (President of HICARE)


I would like to develop a new program for entering clinical test results of residents who were exposed to radiation at the nuclear test site in Semipalatinsk. These data will constitute part of a database, which already includes information regarding radiation routes, death and screening of radiation-exposed individuals.
