    Let us follow the example of the Jews


    A member of the Yerevan City Council called upon to create a
    biological safety foundation `In the Soviet years, there were over 150
    thousand births in Armenia. Today, 30-35 thousand births a year is
    considered a high birth rate. Not to speak about that, in this
    situation, the emigration has reached an alarming temps. We now also
    have health problems: men's sterility reaches approximately 45%. These
    are serious and disturbing indicators that should not be looked
    through fingers. These figures require serious analysis and
    conclusions.',- expressed her concern the PAP party members in the
    Yerevan City Council Armine Gyulazyan in the conversation with
    Aravot. The council member having the specialty of physician
    emphasizes the importance of the new policy on restoration of national
    gene pool and reproduction.

    Armine Gyulazyan, personally, has her own perceptions in the
    resolution of this problem. `We need to create a biological safety
    foundation. Every newborn should have its share in this fund. Such a
    fund is a necessary condition for the promotion of our gene pool
    reproduction.' The funding sources of the Foundation, according to our
    interlocutor, can be regular church donations, including two
    Patriarchal chairs, Etchmiadzin and Antelias. The Armenian
    humanitarian capital, annual Diaspora contributions should also have
    their participation. For example, our dual citizen compatriots,
    according to Mrs. Armine, can contribute one dollar in the form of
    membership fee per month to the Foundation, as the Jews do. She
    believes that annual marathons should be organized for the Foundation,
    as an example of `Hayastan' All-Armenian Fund.

    `Our gene pool safety, today, requires a new urban policy,'- believes
    our interlocutor. According to her, it is necessary to preserve and
    not to distort Tamanyan architecture in the future solutions of urban
    development and architecture. `How beautiful are today's modern and
    high-rise buildings next to Tamanyan buildings from the viewpoint of
    harmony? Also, such constructions do not comply with our ground, as
    5-7 storey buildings are designed by Tamanyan designs, especially for
    the central parts of Yerevan.',-says the council member. In her
    opinion, the safety of our gene pool needs to a day early pass to a
    mass and affordable house building from elite house building. `Let it
    not sound thunderous, but today it is necessity of our vital national
    preservation. Here, it assumes the participation of the municipality,
    and charitable contributions, as well as of beneficiaries, the
    population.' According to a member of the council, the residents will
    be happy to invest even their scarce

    resources for the sake of their family's future security. And the
    urban and the political authority should taken the chance and use this
    circumstance to bring the programs to reality, for which the voter's
    vote has requested. Also, it is necessary to direct the resources
    correctly and targeted that are invested in the urban economy for
    charitable purposes.

    In addition, our interlocutor considers the development and
    application of a new concept of health care primary, which will
    include protection of labor rights for medical personnel, salary
    increase for medical personnel and increase of general living
    standards, and provision of medical services free or at least 50%
    discount for the medical staff. She also emphasizes the importance of
    food safety issues. She has noticed that there is no laboratory in
    Armenia that would be able to conducting check-ups in compliance with
    modern standards. In the general context, our interlocutor is also
    concerned about the issues of landscaping of the city, solid waste
    management, and supports the existence of solid waste processing
    plant, which will be of mutual benefit, ecological problems will be
    resolved, and the fertilizer received in the result of the plant
    functioning will be used for agricultural purposes.
