During the third meeting of the Monitoring Committee for the Interreg IPA Romania-Serbia Programme, two large infrastructure projects, totalling 14 million euro, were selected for funding, in the field of emergency management and development of medical infrastructure in the border area.

The projects aim to improve health and civil protection infrastructure and disaster management in the border area, including through the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment, as well as through the professional training of medical staff and those involved in emergency situations.

The project dedicated to emergency situations management in the border area aims to increase the safety and protection of the population, by improving the intervention capacity of emergency professional services and local communities in the cross-border area.

The project dedicated to medical infrastructure has the objective to increase the access of the rural population to quality medical services in the field of early detection and treatment of cases of dementia.
