Through the project, the ministry also procured and supplied essential medical equipment to Monggar Regional Referral Hospital, Gyelposhing Hospital and other primary health centres in Monggar. The ministry also provided training opportunities that benefitted eight districts including Monggar Dzongkhag.
The project started in June 2019 and was completed in June this year.
