Colombia’s well being ministry assigned 109bn pesos (US$29mn) for 128 tasks to enhance hospital infrastructure and increase well being providers in additional than 300 municipalities throughout the nation.
The investments are geared toward supporting well being providers in small municipalities and rising the capability of medium-sized hospitals amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the ministry stated in a launch.
The works on the tasks are anticipated to start within the coming weeks. The tasks have already been assessed by the well being ministry and technical revisions have been performed with the intention to carry them out as rapidly as doable, the presidency stated in a separate assertion.
The funds will come from a 14.8tn-peso emergency fund established earlier this yr to take care of the fallout of the well being emergency, it added.
