The equipment was handed over to the Acting Permanent Secretary Mrs Bertha Katjivena by OOCT Chairman Hans-Wilhelm Schütte.

Schütte pledged OOCT support to continue to assisting the Ministry of Health and Social Services to elevate the standard of service delivery in public health sector and more prominently at state health facilities.

“Despite the current difficult economic times, we will continue to commit to the improvement of the quality of healthcare for the Namibian nation,” he said.

The donation is a result of a Technical Corporation Agreement between Support Ulm e.V, OOCT and the Ministry of Health and Social Services, for delivery of medical equipment as prioritized by the ministry to ensure excellent medical care in public health facilities and the exchange of medical professionals.
