The project aims to provide easier access to basic treatment, improve the quality of services and condition of health facilities.
Medical equipment will be bought within the programme along with new ambulances. The project also aims to increase the number and quality of specialised visits and exams provided.
Particular attention will be devoted, among other things, to the deployment of ambulances in isolated areas and to the training of doctors and paramedics.
Healthcare is a priority in the cooperation between European Union and Tunisia, and a key issue in the democratic transition of the North African country in order to boost development and aid its poorest citizens. (ANSAmed)
