Bridges for Birth

The INTERREG project “Bridges for Birth” is the first attempt to establish long-term sustainable cross-border health care in the Austrian-Slovak border region. In addition to the expansion of hospital cooperation across the border, through which neonatal emergencies from the district of Hainburg can be transported to the nearby Children’s University Hospital in Bratislava in the future, future cooperation potentials are also assessed and basic framework conditions for the implementation of cross-border patient care are created. In this way, the services of the health care systems can be harmonised with the needs of the local population, resulting in a sustainable improvement in the quality of life.
