Better access to quality healthcare in Latvia
One of the Latvian capital’s biggest hospitals has been allocated EUR 64 million to help it upgrade and provide better services to marginalised and at-risk members of society.
The financing comes from the European Regional Development Fund and will help the Pauls Stradins Clinical University Hospital in Riga carry out building projects, acquire new technology and develop infrastructure needed for the roll-out of a quality insurance programme.
The project targets citizens living on the margins of society and those at risk of falling into poverty, in line with an EU programme focused on fostering growth and employment in the Baltic country.
