Japanese Support For Seven Health Institutions In Serbia

The Government of Japan secured two FUJIFILM endoscopes, one TOSHIBA digital X-ray machine and five HITACHI ultrasound devices, worth a total of a million Japanese yen (approximately a million Serbian dinars), as support to Serbia’s healthcare needs following the major floods that hit the country in 2014.

The donated equipment was produced in areas hit by the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2014 and distributed to seven health institutions in Serbia.

The ceremony was attended by H.E. Juichi Takahara, Ambassador of Japan to Serbia, Dr Meho Mahmutović, State Secretary at the Serbian Health Ministry, Nikola Nikodijević, President of the Belgrade City Assembly, and Radisav Šćepanović Ph.D., Director of the “Dr Dragiša Mišović-Dedinje” Clinical Centre.
