Health Minister: Georgian Citizens Will Not Need Medical Treatments at Foreign Hospitals

At the meeting with a group of international experts, Georgian Health Minister David Sergeenko made focus on the quality of medical treatments in Georgia.

“We should care for the quality of our achievements. Georgian citizens should not have to visit foreign countries for medical treatments. Out state has got sufficient resources to develop this direction here and our patients will need foreign clinics in only exceptional cases”, David Sergeenko said.

As reported, as part of the EU associated membership agreement the Georgian government has signed a long-term agreement with an international consulting group of Global Alliance for Health and Social Compact. The document calls for harmonizing the Georgian practices with the European standards of the Health System.

The document was signed by Georgian Minster of Labor, Health and Social Protection David Sergeenko and the group coordinator Jean Li Malkin. The group aims to organize a fundamentally new innovative model of the healthcare system through meeting European medicals standard by 100% and minimizing expenditures on health and medical treatments.
