Rotation of SAF Contingent in MINUSCA
Thursday, 14.9.2023 | Multinational Operations
Members of the Serbian Armed Forces, who have been engaged in the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) since March, have returned to the country after successfully participating in this peacekeeping operation.
For the last six months, the SAF contingent, that included a Role 2+ military hospital, was in charge of primary and secondary health care of UN personnel, emergency surgeries and other emergencies, basic dental care, and evacuation of the injured.
In complex security conditions in the area of operation, they successfully completed all assigned tasks, presenting the professionalism and skills of the members of the SAF medical service in the best possible way. They were replaced by a new contingent that will continue to perform the tasks related to health care of UN personnel in the capital of the Central African Republic, Bangui.
The Serbian Armed Forces began their participation in MINUSCA in 2014 by sending medical and non-medical personnel, and, in addition to the Role 2+ Military Hospital, they also deploy their members as staff officers and military observers.
