SARAJEVO, Bosnia (September 14,2007) – The Canadian Ambassador to Bosnia David Hutchings and the Bosnian Minister of Civil Affairs Sredoje Novic signed two memorandums on understanding for the projects that are to be implemented by the Canadian government. The Bosnian healthcare sector reform is the aim of the projects.

Conditions and deadlines for Canadian and Bosnian participation in implementation of the projects are defined in the memorandums. Both the projects, namely, “Primary Healthcare Protection Policy in the West Balkans” and “Youth and Healthcare in the Blakans”, are to be realized by September 2009. Canadian Institute for International Healthcare and the Queens University will implement the projects.

It has been emphasized after the signing that the projects are aimed to contribute the Bosnian citizens’ health perseverance.

Both the projects will be implemented in Serbia as well, which means that the funds will be equally distributed for the project activities in both the countries.

Canada has been providing help in the healthcare sector in the Southeastern Europe since 1990. The country has provided over 540 million Canadian Dollars for the implementation of over 800 projects. The country’s activities in Bosnia are focused on the healthcare sector and the rule of law.
