Under the agreement, HITES will provide over 42 types of equipment, which include anesthesia units, neonatal ventilators, patient monitors, ultrasound scanner, dental chairs and examination beds.

Mr. Sathu said the signing marked the second phase of the procurement of medical equipment under the Indian grant. The first phase of procurement amounting to Rs. 18 core was successfully completed by HITES in early November this year.

HLL Chairman and Managing Director Dr R K Vats, IAS, said the supply of medical equipment to Mahe and other islands by HITES would strengthen the healthcare system in the Republic of Seychelles.
