Wednesday, 6.7.2022 | Multinational Operations
The members of the Serbian Armed Forces, who were deployed in the United Nations peacekeeping forces in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) since November last year, have returned to the country, after successfully participating in this peacekeeping operation.
In the previous almost eight months, the Serbian Armed Forces contingent, which included staff officers and a Level 2+ Military Hospital, successfully carried out all tasks in accordance with the mandate of the mission, thus confirming the high standards of behavior of members of the Serbian Armed Forces in peacekeeping operations. They were replaced by a new contingent, which arrived today in the capital of the Central African Republic, Bangui, where our military hospital is located.
The Serbian military hospital, which has been fully autonomous and self-sustaining since two years ago, provides first and second line health care for United Nations personnel, emergency surgical and other interventions, basic dental care and evacuation of the injured.
The Serbian Armed Forces began its deployment in the United Nations peacekeeping forces in the Central African Republic in 2014 by deploying medical and non-medical personnel, and in addition to the Level 2+ Military Hospital, it also deploys its personnel as staff officers and military observers.
