Hungarian Defense Forces Medical Center

UN Staff Wards Against Health Emergencies in Hungary

July 26, 2019

FAO, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, has signed an agreement with the Hungarian Defense Forces Medical Center in Budapest on delivering first aid trainings for United Nations staff members based in Hungary. The 100 participants will include largely fire wardens and administration team members, the ones who are the most often present in the offices.

A press release by the organization says the Center’s training will cover basic life support know-how – theory and practice alike – and the use of the automated external defibrillator.

The Hungarian capital, Budapest, is home to seven UN agencies and international organizations and their more than 1,100 employees. Among other tasks, they operate projects, administer human resources and financial processes, even to the most far-flung places. Participating agencies include the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), FAO, the International Labor Organization (ILO), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), UNICEF, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), and the World Health Organization (WHO).

“The safety and security of colleagues is the baseline for quality work. For us, it ensures that we can deliver our mandate and contribute to a more sustainable and equitable future,” Vladimir Rakhmanin, FAO Assistant Director-General and Regional Representative for Europe and Central Asia said. “We are glad to partner with such a renowned institution to achieve this,” he added.

Major general István Kun Szabó, the head of the Medical Center, signed the accord from the training provider’s side.

During the ceremony, Kun Szabó presented a special medal and book to Vladimir Rakhmanin that commemorate this year’s 120 anniversary of the Center’s establishment.

The trainings are planned for the autumn.
