Ukrainian-American Birth Defects Program
In 2002 the Program was extended to Kherson and Khmelnytsky Oblasts where informational-resource OMNI-Centers were created as well. In 2001 OMNI-Center was created in "Kyiv Mohyla Academy" National University.
In 2002 such a center was established in Simferopol (Crimea).

Halytsky) joined the Network.
