EU Commission Endorses 71 Mln Euro Financing for Bulgarian Emergency Healthcare

The European Commission said that it has approved 71 million euro ($80.8 million) of Cohesion Policy financing for a project aimed at improving Bulgaria's emergency healthcare services. "Thanks to this EU-funded project, the quality and accessibility of healthcare in Bulgaria will improve significantly," Corina Cretu, commissioner for regional policy, said in a statement on Wednesday. The project envisages overhaul of all 237 emergency care facilities throughout the country and the purchase of 400 new ambulances. Last month, Bulgaria's health ministry signed two contracts worth a total of 38.3 million levs with Sofia France Auto for supply of 280 ambulances. The health ministry is also currently awaiting offers for supply of 120 type B emergency ambulances, worth an estimated 15.6 million levs.
