Serbian government on Sunday announced that it plans to spend hundreds of millions of euros this year to improve the country’s healthcare system.

Announcing at a press conference, Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said the money will be used in projects including new and reconstructed medical centers, purchase of latest equipment and investment in treatment of certain diseases.

He gave some details such as 122 million euros investment in the new building of the medical center in Belgrade, 51.2 million euros for medical center in Novi Sad and 44 million euros in Kragujevac.

The prime minister described the investment to healthcare as a comprehensive one which has not been seen in Serbia over the past 70 years “since the end of the Second World War.”

He also unveiled plans of equipment purchases for this year, including some most advanced equipment for tumor treatment and ambulances.

According to Vucic, the government has been working to improve the country’s healthcare system, which ranked low in Europe.

“Two years ago our healthcare system was the worst ranked in Europe. Last year we advanced by four positions while this year the progress will be even more significant,” Vucic said.

The prime minister explained that the new investments are the result of the surplus in the state budget that will continue to grow in 2017. Enditem
