The allocation of medicines was balanced between the various Kosovo Albanian and Kosovo Serb nosocomos present in the region.

Extreme gratitude was expressed by the health personnel of the hospitals visited for the work carried out by KFOR and Italy, for the continuous collaboration offered, especially by the Italian soldiers who, with their work, contribute not only to the stability of the country, but also to the well-being of the local population.
