The European Investment Bank has provided the Syrian health sector with a €130m loan to fund new investments aimed at improving healthcare access and services across the country.

The Syrian Healthcare II project will support the construction of eight hospitals located in six of the country’s Governorates, including the completion of the National Centre for Drugs and Public Health in Damascus.

The deal will also help in the provision of medical equipment for these hospitals.

The project will help improve healthcare access to people in remote areas and will meet the underlying healthcare needs of the population for prevention, detection and drug safety.

European Investment Bank vice-president Philippe de Fontaine Vive said the project represents a significant response to the need to fight both traditional diseases and new illnesses brought about by modern living.

“Our objective is to provide greater accessibility to quality healthcare services across the country, particularly for the most disadvantaged,” Vive added.
