The Minister of Labour, Health and Social Affairs of Georgia David Sergeenko has signed a long-term agreement with the international consulting group of the Global Alliance for Health and Social Compact with the aim to harmonize the Georgian Health system with the European standards.
The document was signed as part of the EU associated membership agreement. The document was signed by Georgian Health Minister David Sergeenko and the group coordinator Jean Elie Malkin.
The Georgian healthcare reforms are being taken to higher standards, Georgian Health Minister David Sergeenko told reporters.
“The healthcare system represents a certain challenge in all countries. The system should be renovated periodically and fundamental directions should be modernized. Our system is not exception either. We have moved to a general healthcare system and increased an access to services, one of the important factors. However, efficiency of the project falls if the reforms are implemented without due quality.
We have worked in this direction for over a year. As a result, we are able to implement new and innovative methods and approaches to ensure a high quality of healthcare reforms and pricing and to expand the attainability of the healthcare services. We will introduce new models of partnership between private and state sectors, new systems of quality control over healthcare and medications. I believe this way and the current document signed with top class professionals will enable us to successfully implement this project. The healthcare reforms are moving to higher standards”, the Georgian Health Minister said.
