On May 18, 2017, Ambassador of Japan to the Republic of Moldova Masanobu Yoshii visited Criuleni in order to attend the Handover Ceremony of the Project for Improvement of Medical Equipment in the Public Health Center of Criuleni District, which is funded through the 2015 Grassroots Human Security Projects Scheme ‘Kusanone’. The Center provides primary medical services to the residents from both Criuleni and Dubasari Districts; thus, the procurement of nine pieces of modern medical equipment, such as an ultrasound scanner, biochemical blood analyser, electrocardiograph, semiautomatic coagulator, hematologic analyser, etc., would enhance the quality of diagnosis and treatment of the patients. It is expected that all 100,000 residents of Criuleni and Dubasari districts will benefit from the results of this 61,785 USD grant project financed by the Government of Japan.

Approximately 50 persons, including the Minister of Health Ruxanda Glavan and the Chairman of Criuleni District Burlac, attended the ceremony. Moldovan officials as well as the medical staff expressed their appreciation for the Japanese assistance which would significantly improve the quality and accuracy of medical examinations as well as increase the number of tests administered locally at the Center.
