UNTV seeks to protect the rights and interests of citizens whose health has been affected by nuclear testing in Semipalatinsk. The group conducts medical and environmental research, provides medical assistance to radiation victims, distributes medicines and supplies donated by foreign governments, and sends children to France and Germany for medical treatment.
In 1995, UNTV established an Ecological Resource Center to improve public understanding of environmental issues and to facilitate contact between local NGOs and international organizations.
A print version of much of the information contained in this Central Asian Third Sector Organizations section can be found in Civil Society in Central Asia (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 1999).
