The Health Center in Novi Pazar has been heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic – Novi Pazar had one of the highest incidences of COVID-19 in Serbia, as well as one of the highest mortality rates. SAMA previously donated two patient monitors and blood transfusion warmer to the hospital, which were delivered prior to our visit.
The hospital is overall in very good shape and does receive substantial government funding. The facilities are relatively modern and the staff is well equipped – as such, we do not think that there is much scope for SAMA to help. However, we are interested in supporting medical education and are brainstorming ways to do this.
