The European Commission has approved two more of Slovakia's eleven operational programs for the programming period from 2007 to 2013: for health care and the environment. The Health Care Operational Program will get €250 million from Brussels while Slovak national co-financing will account for €44 million.
By the year 2013, the health sector thus can expect almost Sk10 billion that will be spent for complex reconstruction of large hospitals and selected smaller health care facilities, and also used to purchase new equipment.
The Environment Operational Program is the second richest with the sum of €1.8 billion. This program is financed via the Cohesion Fund and the European Fund for Regional Development. The program will distribute funds through five priorities that include drinking water, flood prevention, clean air protection, waste management and protection of nature and landscape. SITA
