EU-funded outpatient clinic opens in Brus, providing enhanced medical services

Starting today, the residents of Istočni Stari Grad municipality and visitors to the Olympic mountain Trebević and Brus picnic area will benefit from a newly established outpatient clinic. This fully equipped facility is capable of efficiently and swiftly delivering various medical interventions when needed. The European Union in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has contributed 100,000 BAM to support the acquisition of essential medical equipment, office furniture, and an off-road vehicle, enabling prompt medical services to be provided in different locations.



The inauguration of the outpatient clinic on Mountain Trebević was officiated by Ambassador Johann Sattler, the Head of the EU Delegation and EU Special Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina, together with Bojo Gašanović, the Mayor of Istočni Stari Grad Municipality, and Tatjana Bekrić, the Director of Istočni Stari Grad Health Centre. This clinic is of immense significance for the residents of Istočni Stari Grad and the settlement of Brus, as they previously had to travel nearly 30 kilometres to access medical assistance. Furthermore, the new outpatient clinic will cater to the needs of numerous tourists visiting Trebević.


The equipping of the outpatient clinic and the acquisition of the off-road vehicle are part of the “EU for local communities” project, which has a budget of €1.7 million. This project, implemented by the Centre for the Promotion of Civil Society in collaboration with the partner organization Help, finances a wide range of interventions throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina. These interventions play a crucial role in strengthening local communities and improving the quality of life for citizens.
