Lukashenko instructs to equip more healthcare institutions with Adani body scanners

Lukashenko instructs to equip more healthcare institutions with Adani body scanners

MINSK DISTRICT, 20 March (BelTA) – During the visit to Adani Company that leads security, healthcare and scientific industry on 20 March, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko spoke in positive terms about their body scanners and gave an instruction to supply more healthcare institutions in the country with these equipment, BelTA has learned.

Last year the company delivered seven body scanners to various regions of Belarus following the order of the Healthcare Ministry. Adani Company won a tender – their scanners were two times cheaper than foreign analogues. The head of state asked about the specifications of the new equipment and instructed the director general of Adani to take the project to supply healthcare institutions all over the country with similar equipment under his personal control. “Take the project to supply healthcare institutions with similar Belarusian-made equipment under control,” the president said. “Your company is a Belarusian one, it will be cheaper.”

According to Healthcare Minister Vladimir Karanik, the possibility to authorize Adani to organize centralized service maintenance of all Adani equipment (for example, there are about 850 X-ray scanners in Belarusian healthcare institutions) is currently under consideration. It will help save time and avoid continued equipment stoppage.

The possibility to organize tenders for the supply of healthcare equipment was also discussed. The president emphasized the efficiency of this procedure because “there should be competition”. Direct supplies are possible if Belarusian manufacturers offer favorable prices. “We must look for more affordable Belarusian-made equipment rather than personal benefits,” the president said.
