The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has reportedly signed two grant agreements in Iran:
- one with Iran’s Health Ministry to provide grant aid of up to 1.534 billion yen (nearly $14 million) for medical testing and treatment equipment; and,
- one with Tehran Municipality to provide grant aid of up to 1.242 billion yen (nearly $11.5 million) for the improvement of equipment for air pollution analysis.
According to Tehran Times, the first project will provide the equipment required for the early detection and treatment of cancer and cardiovascular diseases to Imam Hussein Hospital and Arash Women’s Hospital in Tehran.
The second project will provide air pollution analysis equipment needed to measure emission gases, carry out chemical analysis on particulate matter and implement other related activities in Tehran.
