Determined to tackle challenges facing its healthcare system, the Serbian government adopted a strategy to improve health infrastructure, equipment and services and adapt them to demographic changes and rising healthcare demand.
The € 200 million loan provided by the CEB supports the refurbishment of around twenty general hospitals and other health infrastructure throughout the country and the acquisition of modern equipment. The renovation of buildings also includes energy efficiency improvements as well as measures to improve access for persons with disabilities.
The investments will significantly improve conditions for patients and medical staff, increase the efficiency of the services provided and enhance the energy efficiency and functionality of the buildings concerned.
An estimated 1.3 million persons, or 20% of the population of Serbia, are expected to benefit from the project.
