On 11 July, the European Union and the World Health Organization (WHO) donated a brand new refrigerated truck to the Armenian National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
The truck is equipped with independent electrical support and a diesel generator to ensure the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, including during emergencies and in the absence of electricity.
This equipment will help the country in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The EU continues to join the targeted efforts to strengthen the health systems worldwide and overcome COVID-19,” said Andrea Wiktorin, the Ambassador, Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Armenia. “Thus, the refrigerated truck is another contribution to ensuring proper cold storage equipment and transportation of vaccines all over Armenia.”
