The WHO Regional Director for Europe visits Georgia

Hans Kluge, Regional Director of the World Health Organization, visits Georgia. He already held a meeting with the Minister of Health Ekaterine Tikaradze.

“My visit to Georgia has three purposes, first of all, it is to work with the Minister of Health, the government and representatives of the health sector on Covid issues. The second goal is to agree on a specific action plan on how we will work on health care reform. I would like to congratulate the Minister that despite the pandemic situation, work continues in terms of access to universal health care in Georgia. The third goal is to define how to strengthen the World Health Organization office in Georgia to increase health care assistance.

I saw a number of innovative approaches in Georgia, such as “fever centers”, online clinics and COVID-hotels, which can serve as an example for other countries”, - said Hans Kluge.
