Are our readers ready to donate money for others' treatment? NEWS.am Medicine's polls tried to find an answer to this question.

Most of the respondents were interested in supporting patients with cancer. As it turned out, 34% of respondents are ready to donate AMD 2500 every month for the treatment of such patients and 14% of respondents are ready to donate AMD 5,000, and 19% - over AMD 10,000. The remaining 33% are not ready to donate money to help people with cancer.

There are fewer people who want to help infertile couples: 53% do not want to donate money for this, 24% are ready to donate AMD 2500 per month, 8% - AMD 5000, and 15% - over AMD 10 000.

Least of all the survey participants are interested in the rehabilitation of people with mental disorders as 58% of respondents said they were not ready to donate money to treat such patients. As it turned out, 25% of respondents are ready to donate AMD 2500 per month, 7% - AMD 5000, and 10% - over AMD 10 000 per month.

The treatment of oncological diseases and infertility in Armenia today is often managed precisely thanks to donations. Although radiation therapy and surgical treatment of oncological diseases have recently been covered by the state order, the patient still has to pay for chemotherapeutic drugs. Charity organizations come to the aid of such patients.
