Additionality and Impact
The project involves the rehabilitation and extension of
healthcare and education infrastructure for the Medical Complex on Paprikovac
Hill in Banja Luka, Republika Srpska. Supporting an investment for human
capital formation in the healthcare sector, it will create positive externalities
comprising wider health effects, skills development and knowledge generation.
The project supports the provision of healthcare services related to
communicable diseases, antimicrobial resistance and other transnational areas
considered as a Global Public Good. It will also contribute to expanding the
supply of better qualified healthcare staff that is indispensable for the
delivery of high-quality and sustainable healthcare services in the Republika
Srpska. The Bank is substantially contributing to the development of this
important health project for Bosnia and Herzegovina by providing financing
conditions that are not available from other financial sources.
This project will improve the quality and efficiency of medical services provided and, therefore, will contribute to preserving the financial and operational viability of the public healthcare system. The construction of the new medical campus will increase the availability of medical staff in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH).

If located within the EU, the project would fall under Annex II of the EIA Directive 2014/52/EU amending the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU. As a potential candidate country to the EU, BiH has adopted the relevant EU Directives, including the EIA Directive 2014/52/EU amending the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU. Thus the requirement to carry out an environmental impact assessment (EIA) would be up to the discretion of the competent authorities, based on a case-by-case assessment or pre-defined criteria. The environmental assessment procedures to be applied will be verified during appraisal and should national procedures fall short of what would be required of the EIA Directive 2014/52/EU amending the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU, the necessary steps will be taken in order to ensure that the environmental aspects of the project will be dealt with in such a way as to meet the requirements of the Directive.
The Bank will require the Promoter to ensure that any procurement procedures are done in accordance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement and the relevant applicable EU public procurement rules.
