A hematology analyzer worth ~$5000 was handed over to the doctors of the settlement of Valky in Kharkiv Oblast thanks to cooperation with the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ). This was reported by Valky City Council.

“This analyzer is really a very important piece of medical equipment that every doctor needs daily. Now our family doctors have the opportunity to get a patient’s blood test in just a few minutes,” said Maryna Orlova, director of the Valky Primary Health Care Center.

According to the city council, the cooperation between the Valky community and GIZ began during the process of reforming the primary health care system. Thanks to this, family doctors were provided with the most necessary for their daily work, and the medical center was equipped to start the early intervention program.

Moreover, GIZ also supports education and sports. Valky Mayor Valerii Skrypnichenko notes that the first result of cooperation with Germany was the construction of a sports ground with an artificial surface.

Currently, the Valky community cooperates with several international charitable organizations and foundations.

Earlier, 48 generators were handed over to Kharkiv Oblast, 89 of which would be provided to medical institutions.
