In a display of enduring friendship and solidarity, the Japanese Embassy in Serbia, led by Ambassador Akira Imamura, has announced a significant donation to Serbian health institutions, totaling nearly €130,000. 

The official ceremony saw the signing of agreements between Ambassador Imamura and key Serbian health sector representatives, underscoring Japan’s commitment to supporting Serbia’s medical infrastructure.

The beneficiaries of this generous aid include the Health Centre Vladimirci, the Institute for Neonatology in Belgrade, and the National Association of Parents of Children with Cancer (NURDOR). These donations, part of the Basic Human Needs Project (POPOS), reflect Japan’s tailored approach to bolstering Serbia’s healthcare services, providing essential medical equipment ranging from ultrasound devices to a pasteurizer for human milk, and medical devices for painless vein detection.

Health Minister Danica Grujičić, present at the signing, highlighted the significant impact of Japanese assistance over the past 25 years, amounting to over €16 million dedicated solely to the health sector from a total aid package of approximately €511 million. This longstanding partnership between Japan and Serbia, characterized by strategic support for critical health services, exemplifies the profound and positive influence of international cooperation.
