Short description: Rezina town is located on the right bank of the Nistru River, 98 km away from the town of Chisinau. The General Surgery Department of the Rezina District Hospital was in a deplorable condition and the local public authorities did not have enough resources to finance the reconstruction independently. Annually, over 5,500 people benefit of health care services in the Rezina hospital, many of them coming from the left banks of the Nistru River. The District Administration of Rezina addressed the request to support the capital reconstruction of Traumatology and Reanimation Departments of District Hospital.

Beneficiaries: 2000 people from Rezina District and Ribnita, adjacent communities from TN region, local authorities

Results: The official inauguration of the Traumatology and Reanimation Department of Rezina District Hospital by the representatives of the local community, EU Delegation to Moldova and UNDP Moldova, took place on July 2, 2013. The Department is currently fully functional and its rehabilitation solved one of the most pressing issues for the Rezina District inhabitants. Also, this project contributes to experience exchange between Rezina and Rybnitsa health institutions, representing a strong confidence building element. Annually, more than 500 women on both banks of the Nistru River decide to give birth at the maternity hospital. Over 10 doctors from Rybnitsa are working at the Rezina District Hospital.
