Mongolia

I was born in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia on August 09, 1961. I graduated National University of Health Sciences in 1982, and started to work in the Central Hospital of Mongolia as neurologist. Now, I am senior counselling neurologist at the Central Hospital of Mongolia. I am married, and have two children.

I founded the Mongolian Stroke Association in 2009 and in the same year, the Association become member of the World Stroke Organization (WSO). We become APSO member in 2015. We have worked very closely with the WSO, and we hope to have very successful collaboration with APSO.

Where do you see the industry in the next 20 years?
We see the next 20 years very positive in terms of fighting against stroke in Mongolia. During the next two decades our collaboration will be very significant. Along our cooperation, we are planning to host a conference in Mongolia, and we have many ideas of action plan. We want to set more and more stroke units in Mongolia.

Why are you excited about participating in APSC 2017?
The main purpose of our participation in APSC is to strengthen our regional collaboration against stroke and update our theoretical and practical knowledge about stroke incidents and the ways to prevent from it.
