United States Continues To Support Montenegro During The COVID-19 Pandemic

As the COVID-19 situation in Montenegro worsens, the United States continues to provide support to our friend, partner and Ally.  This assistance builds on long-term U.S. investment in Montenegro’s health system.

After the first donations of three monitors to the Clinical Centre of Montenegro in April, which allow doctors to monitor the vital signs of critical patients connected to ventilators, we also provided materials for 4,000 COVID-19 tests.

More recently, on September 16, Ambassador Judy Rising Reinke visited Berane to present a mobile ultrasound and an equipment monitor provided through the U.S. European Command’s Humanitarian Assistance program.

Two days later, on September 18, our Office of Defense Cooperation, headed by Commander Matthew Hamm, donated similar medical equipment to the Kotor general hospital.

#SviZajedno Ambasada SAD sa zadovoljstvom nastavlja da donira medicinsku opremu bolnicama širom Crne Gore tokom #COVID19. Juče je naša Kancelarija za odbrambenu saradnju, na čelu sa komandantom Matthew Hamm, predala mobilni ultrazvuk i monitorsku opremu kotorskoj opštoj bolnici. Donacija je omogućena zahvaljujući podršci Programa humanitarne pomoći Evropske komande Sjedinjenih Država (EUCOM). Ranije je isti program omogućio doniranje opreme bolnici u Beranama i Kliničkom centru u Podgorici. Od 2010. godine, putem EUCOM-ovog Programa humanitarne pomoći, Sjedinjene Države uložile su preko 1,2 miliona američkih dolara u zdravstvene projekte širom Crne Gore, uz planirana dodatna ulaganja. #USpartnerMNE 🇲🇪🇺🇸🇲🇪🇺🇸 #AllTogether The Embassy is pleased to be able to continue to donate medical equipment to hospitals throughout the country during #COVID-19.

As we continue to provide support to the Montenegrin health system, we join the national health authorities in calling on everyone to respect preventative measures. #DistancaRukeMaska
