The EU provides substantial financial support to cancer prevention, treatment and care, in order to help more people to live without cancer, more cancer patients to be diagnosed earlier and have a better quality of life after treatment.
Ensuring healthy lives, an efficient health care system and strong health sector are essential to sustainable development of each society. Therefore, the EU has been involved in promoting well-being, improving the health system’s efficiency and health infrastructure modernization within and outside its borders.
Through numerous projects, the EU supported tackling social exclusion and ensuring equal access to health and justice for marginalized groups in Montenegro. It also contributed to de-stigmatizing mental health and improving medical care for pregnant mothers and infants. With the procurement of 12 ambulance vehicles for health centers across Montenegro, as well as new modern equipment for transfusion and modern dermoscope for detecting melanoma at an early stage, the EU helped modernize health infrastructure in the country.
The EU will continue with providing support and financial assistance to Montenegro in reaching best European practices and standards in the health area, especially in time of Covid-19 pandemic.
