Kluge: Belarus shows presentable results in medical care access

Hans Kluge, the WHO Regional Director for Europe, talked to journalists after his meeting with the President 


“We’ve signed a new two-year co-operation plan with Belarus’ Healthcare Minister, Dmitry Pinevich, today. Its first aspect envisages the general medical coverage. This means that every citizen should have an open access to healthcare – regardless of their social and financial status. Belarus is demonstrating presentable results in this direction – mainly due to the fact that it has preserved the healthcare system since Soviet times, while filling it with new high-quality content,” Mr. Kluge said.
