Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis stressed that the state’s cooperation with private entities should be effectively implemented in order for them to function in a parallel and complementary way in favor of the citizen and to respond to major social issues, during the presentation of the Health Initiative, organized by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

The Health Initiative is a 400 million euros health-related project that includes the design, construction and equipment of three new hospitals: the Komotini General Hospital, the Sparta General Hospital and the Thessaloniki Pediatric Hospital.

It also provides for the purchase of two aircrafts and two helicopters for the EKAV air routes, the reinforcement of the University of Athens Nursing School programs and the supply of modern equipment to the Evangelismos Hospital and the hospitals of Heraklion, Ioannina, Larissa and Alexandroupolis.
