Estonia Supports Renewal of Moldova’s Healthcare System


Nr 324-E

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs supports a development cooperation project in Moldova to improve local citizens’ access to primary healthcare services and medical information. The project will create a telephone service that covers all of Moldova and offers consultation about primary healthcare as well as information about medicines and health insurance.

The Foreign Ministry will support the project, which was initiated by the not-for-profit Estonian Advice Centre and will last until May 2014, with 65,000 Euros.

According to Foreign Minister Urmas Paet, Moldova is one of Estonia’s priority countries for development cooperation. “We will continue to support Moldova through development cooperation, in order to assist Moldova’s political and economic development in every way,” said Paet.

Moldova’s healthcare system has been modernized successfully in recent years. “The broad use of information technology and mobile solutions allows this to be accomplished with reasonable expenditures,” declared Paet. “For this reason, we have introduced various widely used Estonian solutions to Moldova in recent years,” he added.

Paet says that Estonia has doubled its development cooperation support to Moldova since 2011. He added that in 2012, the support was almost 500,000 Euros and it is in the same category in 2013 as well.

Cooperation between Estonia and Moldova in the field of medicine has been very broad-based and active for years, and now previously independent projects, such as the development of the medical insurance system and the implementation of telephone-based medicinal consultation, have been assembled into one coherent whole.
