Belarusian Healthcare Minister Aleksandr Khodzhayev said in an interview that it intends to partner with African countries in developing the healthcare sector.
News Central reports that Khodzhayev said this on the Belarus 1 TV channel on 28 January.
The President emphasised the importance of enhancing services exports, and assisting African countries in improving their healthcare systems as he appointed Aleksandr Khodzhayev new minister. “I didn’t have to start from scratch. The delegations have worked out all the aspects of interaction; people have been put in charge of cooperation. We are going to analyse the agreements, to set new targets for ourselves and to monitor them closely to see the effectiveness of the work in this or that direction,” the minister said.
Belarus will partner with Equatorial Guinea, Zimbabwe and others. “The African region is partly new to us in terms of medical competencies. The interest of these countries in this direction is very high. Our pharmaceutical industry needs to promote its services, to build up exports. Many of our services will be in demand in African countries, including the training of specialists,” Aleksandr Khodzhayev noted.
