The European Commissioner with particular responsibility for neighbourhood policy, Johannes Hahn, began a two-day visit to Tunis on Thursday 7 April 2016, according to a statement issued by the EU Delegation in Tunis. In the presence of the Tunisian Minister of Health, he inaugurated an intermediate health centre in the Ksar Bardo urban area as well as a basic healthcare centre in the rural area of Charchara in the Governorate of Beja. “These centres are part of a larger healthcare infrastructure programme financed by a grant from the European Union of EUR 8 million”, he explained. 
He made reference to the fact that “this programme complements the project supporting the reduction of social inequality and provision of healthcare services within these same PAZD2 regions in Tunisia, which is financed by means of an additional grant of EUR 12 million and which provides the biomedical equipment and logistical resources required by these centres.  It is within this context that, on 26 January 2016, 158 vehicles were delivered to the Ministry of Health”.
