The introduction of new services in the public healthcare system in Kosovo through the support of the Luxembourg Cooperation directly contributes to enhancing and improving the quality of healthcare for Kosovo citizens.
Project KSV/017 - Health sector support programme in Kosovo - Phase II is currently playing a crucial role in assisting General Hospital Prizren and General Hospital Gjilan to introduce and implement new services, such as the Pathology Laboratory and Maxillofacial Service.
The mission is crystal clear: to bring new and accessible healthcare services right to the doorstep of the public. It's all about lightening the load on the wallets of citizens in these two regions who used to embark on long, costly journeys and utilise expensive private healthcare options for specialised care.
As the Pathology Laboratory takes root in General Hospital Gjilan, the hospital's staff will acquire the ability to conduct a diverse range of diagnostic tests. This means that patients can now receive swift diagnoses and timely treatments right in their own neighborhoods. Meanwhile, the Maxillofacial Service at General Hospital Prizren opens doors to highly skilled surgeons equipped with cutting-edge technology, offering comprehensive care for conditions affecting the face, jaw, and mouth - all conveniently available nearby. The success of these services will be closely monitored and continuously adjusted to enhance their effectiveness.
Moreover, project put a spotlight on creating spaces that are not just functional but also welcoming and comfortable for both patients and medical staff, supporting the improvement and delivery of quality services in General hospitals Prizren and Gjilan.
Pathalogy Laboratory at General Hospital Gjilan
The initiative of this project in assisting General hospitals Prizren and Gjilan with the introduction of innovative services holds great potential. As these services take root and demonstrate their value, they can serve as a model for other low-funded public healthcare systems in developing countries, illustrating the possibility of positive transformation even with limited resources.
The project KSV/017 - Health sector support programme in Kosovo - Phase II is co-funded by the Government of Kosovo and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and implemented by the Kosovo Ministry of Health and LuxDev, the Luxembourg Development Cooperation Agency.↑ To the top
