EU donates 200 oxygen cylinders to Sarajevo Canton health centres

Bosnia and Herzegovina

EU Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Johann Sattler, delivered 200 oxygen cylinders with supporting equipment to the Medical Centre Kumrovec. The equipment will be distributed to health centres in the Sarajevo Canton as part of the EU COVID-19 response.

 

The medical equipment package includes 10L oxygen cylinders and humidifiers with masks for patients. The total value of the medical equipment donated to the Sarajevo Canton by the EU is over €700,000. The procurement was coordinated by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in consultation with the Sarajevo Canton Government.

 

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the European Union has provided the necessary medical supplies throughout the country, including respirators, X-ray machines, ultrasound and ECG devices, personal protective equipment and PCR tests in the scope of its support programme.
