United States Provides $2.7 Million for COVID-19 Assistance in Montenegro

On November 18, 2021, Ambassador Judy Rising Reinke joined Minister of Health
Dr. Jelena Borovinić Bojović and World Health Representative for Montenegro
Mina Brajovic at an event to announce that the United States – through the United
States Agency for International Development – is providing $2.7 million in urgent
COVID-19 assistance to Montenegro. These American Rescue Plan funds will
enable The World Health Organization to partner with the Ministry of Health to
increase testing capacity, improve the availability of life-saving oxygen treatment
for patients suffering from COVID, strengthen infection prevention and control in
health facilities, and boost vaccination rates, especially in rural areas.
