Swiss funding supports health, crime prevention in Roma communities
The Swiss-Hungarian Cooperation Programme is supporting two tenders for a combined 17.6 million Swiss francs to improve health and support crime prevention in Roma communities in central and north-eastern Hungary, a government decree published in the latest issue of the official gazette Magyar Kozlony shows.
Under the decree, a tender for 15.3 million Swiss francs, including 13 million in support from the cooperation programme, is to be called to improve the health of Roma in the region. The other tender, to establish community crime prevention networks, is for 2.3 million Swiss francs, including 2 million from the cooperation programme.
The tenders are to be called within 75 days.
Switzerland is making contributions to twelve new EU member states to help reduce economic and social disparities in the enlarged union. Hungary is getting 130.7 million Swiss francs under the Swiss-Hungarian Cooperation Programme in 2008-2012.
