The SMiLE project focuses in the upgrading of the primary and emergency health care services in the cross-border area, through a holistic approach that includes the improvement of the existing infrastructures, the supply of medical equipment that will facilitate the in situ provision of improved PHC services, the PHC practitioners capacity building, as well as the introduction of innovative practices in PHC, focusing on vulnerable population groups.
More precisely, the SMiLe project aims mainly to upgrade and equip with basic modern medical equipment 6 PHC centers in the CB area - Paranesti, Nevrokopi, Echinos, Iasmos, Stavroupoli & Soufli -, 1 regional hospital (Didimoticho) and 2 MHAT hospitals (Ardino & Harmanli), all located in remote and isolated territories of the CB area. While, the improvement of the emergency response through the upgrading of the ambulances management systems in the area of Drama and Harmanli is also one of the project main objectives.
