Health Ministers of Cyprus and Greece discuss cooperation on transplants

The cooperation between Cyprus and Greece in the health sector is excellent and has been going on for many years, said Minister of Health Michael Damianos, following a meeting with the Greek Minister of Health, Adonis GeorgiadIs, in the presence of the Greek Deputy Minister of Health, Marios Themistocleous.

According to an announcement released by the PIO, Damianos thanked Greece for its long-standing support of Cyprus in the health sector and expressed confidence that this will be further strengthened.

In the context of the 20 May meeting, he said, issues discussed included the upcoming cooperation between the two countries in the field of transplants through the signing of two agreements, as well as the amendment of the inter-state agreement between the two countries, which has been in force since 1987, concerning the specialisations of doctors and medicines.

On his part, the Greek Health Minister said that Greece has a lot to learn from the Republic of Cyprus regarding the reforms in the country's Health System, as they have been carried out in recent years.

He added that the two ministers discussed the expansion of bilateral cooperation both on transplants and the recognition of medical specialisations, while expressing confidence that the good cooperation between the two countries in the health sector will continue in the future.

"The Hellenic Republic and the Republic of Cyprus are two separate countries with one heart," he noted.

Greek Deputy Minister of Health, Marios Themistocleous, in his remarks, noted that the aim is to strengthen cooperation between Greece and Cyprus in all sectors, which will benefit the citizens of both countries.
