The Embassy continues to donate medical equipment to hospitals throughout the country during #COVID-19. On Thursday, February 18, the Office of Defense Cooperation headed by Commander Matthew Hamm, and Defense Attaché Lieutenant Colonel Robert Craig Perry delivered a mobile ultrasound and equipment monitors to Bar general hospital. The donation was made possible thanks to the support of the United States European Command’s (USEUCOM) Humanitarian Assistance Program. Additional medical equipment is expected to be delivered to the hospitals in Niksic, Bijelo Polje and Pljevlja by the end of February through the same program.
Since 2010, through USEUCOM’s Humanitarian Assistance Program, the United States has invested over $1.3 million in health-related projects throughout Montenegro, with additional investment planned.
