U.S. Donation Ceremony of Critical COVID-19 PPE Equipment to Hospitals in Ben Guerdane and Remada

Chargé d’Affaires Gregory LoGerfo met with Minister of Health Faouzi Mehdi to reaffirm U.S. support for Tunisia’s efforts in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.  The meeting was followed by a donation ceremony of critical COVID-19 PPE equipment to hospitals in Ben Guerdane and Remada, including thousands of locally procured protective suits, blouses, glasses, shoe covers, and disinfectant supplies, a symbol of our continued partnership to fight this pandemic. This is just one component of American assistance reaching Tunisians throughout the country.  The U.S. government has provided more than $36 million USD in support since March 2020 to help Tunisia respond to the immediate health crisis and address the pandemic’s long-term economic and social effects. We make these investments because we believe in the Tunisian people.
