Hungary, Romania health ministers follow up on joint plans

The Hungarian and Romanian health ministers met in Budapest on Thursday to discuss progress on cross-border co-operation in health care.




The meeting served as a follow-up to the first joint Hungarian-Romanian government session held in Bucharest on October 20 last year, where public health programs and structural reform and developments in health care were among the areas where the two countries agreed to co-operate.


Romanian health minister Eugen Nicolaescu said Romania saw the experiences of Hungary as worthwhile and ones from which they wished to learn, adding that Romania, too, had its own achievements in the field. He agreed with Hungarian minister Jenő Rácz that joint regional projects were needed which would improve the health standards of the public on both sides of the border.
