The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary together with the US Agency for International Development (USAID) will start implementing a health development project in Ukraine in early November.

Acting through the Hungarian Interchurch Aid, the US and Hungarian sides are providing three hospitals in Kyiv and Khmelnytskyi region with oxygen stations to tackle the secondary impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare for future outbreaks of infectious diseases.

Hungary will moreover provide additional medical devices with a view to supporting efforts against the pandemic. As an example of our successful cooperation in addressing global challenges, the project has been made possible through the co-financing of the Hungarian and US sides, with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary providing 250 000 dollars in addition to the 100 000 dollars contributed by the United States Agency for International Development.
