Announcement of Results | 3rd Cycle | "Collaborating for Health" Programme
DATE
11 Dec '20
FIELD
SOCIAL WELFARE & COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

The public health organisations and the corresponding units, which have been preselected* for support within the framework of the “Collaborating for Health” programme for the year 2021 are herewith announced.

The Programme is a joint initiative of the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation and the  Greek Shipowners’ Social Welfare Company SYN-ENOSIS and it was aimed at public legal entities that provide health and medical care services in Greece and, more specifically, Public Hospitals and Health Centres across the country as well as at Greek non-profit private legal entities active in the Health sector. The Programme involves the funding of small and medium-scale projects, in order to meet urgent needs in the Public Health sector and enhance the services offered by health organisations in Greece by: (a) procuring medical equipment and (b) upgrading their infrastructure. 

 

The Programme’s third cycle targeted Children’s Hospitals and General and University Hospitals, aiming to upgrade their Pediatric Departments/Units, Health Centers’ Pediatric medical offices and non-profit entities active in the Health Sector in Greece.

 

Emphasis was placed on supporting Hospital Units/Departments that provide vital health services for the care of children and infants. The basic evaluation and selection criteria were the extent to which each donation is necessary for the operation of the final recipient (Clinic/Department/Unit/Health Centre) of the donation, the proportion of each donation and the reduction of inequalities in the provision of healthcare (indicatively: reduction in patient travel or hardship, provision of healthcare to socially vulnerable groups) and the contribution to the enhancement of the healthcare provider’s self-efficiency.

 

The organisations and health units/departments that were selected for support are listed in detail below:

  1. PNOE – Friends of Children in Intensive Care - Supply of medical equipment for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the University General Hospital of Heraklion, and for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the University General Hospital of Ioannina.
