Minister Osmanovic noted the importance of this donation and stated that it will significantly contribute to the improvement of the quality of health care services, especially in the field of surgery, gynecology, obstetrics, and pediatrics, as well as prenatal and neonatal diagnostics.

Ambassador of Japan Kazuya Ogawa stated that since the end of the war in BiH, a total of 15 hospitals (including nine hospitals that have signed grant contracts yesterday and 115 health centers) received medical equipment from the Government of Japan as part of this grant.

He says that he got assured that the equipment is used and maintained properly during his visit to the University Clinical Center Tuzla earlier this year, and the director of that institution is satisfied with the quality of equipment from Japan.

End users of medical equipment that was provided within the second phase of the grant, are the Clinical Center of University Sarajevo, University Clinical Center Tuzla, University Clinical Hospital Mostar, Cantonal Hospital “Dr. Safet Mujic” Mostar and Cantonal Hospital Gorazde. Other users are the County Hospital “Dr. Fr. Mihovil Sucic” Livno, and public healthcare institutions “Hospital Gradiska”, Hospital Trebinje and Healthcare Center Brcko.

Director of the Hospital Trebinje Vaso Mijanovic and director of the Healthcare Center Brcko Nihad Sibonjic are satisfied with the fact that these medical facilities are part of the project that benefits citizens. They expressed the hope that there will be similar projects in the future for these and other healthcare institutions in both BH entities.

Medical equipment was provided on the basis of the Agreement on the exchange of notes between the Council of Ministers of BiH and the Government of Japan, which was signed in 2014 within the process of implementation of the grant assistance that the Government of Japan approved in 2013 with the aim of improvement of the economic and social development of BiH. Part of this grant (554,000 EUR) is intended for the healthcare sector in BiH, i.e. for the purchase of medical equipment. The first phase of this grant was implemented in March last year when nine medical institutions in BiH received medical equipment, which is the product of small and medium enterprises from Japan. The first part of donation is worth 305,000 EUR.
