The central need which triggered this projects planning and development is the new road which will connect Komotini and Kardzhali. This road is a part of the Transeuropean network and more specifically part of Corridor 9 and is expected to operate in August 2011.The assumption is that any accident incurred on the international road between Komotini and Kardzhali will be carried out by their two hospitals. Currently, Komotini's and Kardzhali's hospitals do not have sufficient and specialized units to face emergency road accidents due to the lack of accidents that demand this kind of special services. This project scope is to meet this upcoming need by upgrading quality of life through cooperation and networking on health and social welfare issues The projects idea is a. to improve the existing and b. set up new emergency service capabilities of Komotini and Kardzhali hospitals in order to be able to encounter emergencies occurring in the new highway. At the same time the projects scope is to systemically upgrade all emergency services which are extremely crucial for people in the cross border area. So, hospitals of Komotini and Kardzhali developed a project in order to establish cooperation in health and social protection issues which will lead to a substantial upgrade of the quality of life through systemic upgrade of health (mainly emergency) services.
