By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Taiwan on Saturday donated $460,000 to the Ministry of Health & Wellness for Improvement of Medical Imaging services at Belize’s main public hospitals.
David Kuan-Chou Chien, Ambassador of the Republic of China (Taiwan), made the presentation to Health Minister Michel Chebat during the Cayo North Culture Day in San Ignacio.
“This donation comes as part of the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) project that has been implemented to assist in the upgrade of medical imaging systems at the Karl Heusner Memorial, Western Health Regional and Northern Health Regional hospitals,” said a press release by the Government of Belize Press Office.
“Computer and radiography equipment will be purchased to improve image quality and also to allow for more convenient storage and transfer of these images between these hospitals.”
The statement said the PACS project was signed and implemented in November 2019.
PACS is a four-year project made possible through financing provided by the Republic of China (Taiwan). The project includes the procurement of specific medical equipment and training of radiology personnel.
In its release the Ministry of Health & Wellness thanked the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) the support to the ministry and to people of Belize.
