Secondary and Tertiary Healthcare Institutions: Upgrade of the Physical Infrastructure

Secondary and Tertiary Healthcare Institutions: Upgrade of the Physical Infrastructure

Project Description

The health services in Kosovo are provided through a network of primary, secondary, and tertiary healthcare institutions, which also provide basic and postgraduate medical education and carry out research activities in addition to their primary function. All secondary and tertiary healthcare facilities are organised within the Kosovo Hospital and University Clinical Services (KHUCS).

One of the major challenges faced by the country’s healthcare system is the low capacity for diagnosis and treatment due to a limited budget available for medical equipment.

To improve the quality of health services and strengthen and advance diagnostics capacities in the public sector, the WBIF finances a feasibility study, including technical specifications and tender documentation, for the upgrading of medical equipment, consistent with the capacity of the medical personnel and the institutional set-up, in all fourteen secondary and tertiary health provider institutions under the KHUCS.
