  • [01] Cyprus-Greece to enhance cooperation in health sector

    Issues concerning further cooperation between Cyprus and Greece in health matters were discussed during a meeting Monday in Nicosia between Health Minister Stavros Malas and his Greek counterpart Andreas Loverdos.

    Speaking during a joint press conference, Malas said they discussed broadening bilateral cooperation in the field of health and especially as regards training of doctors and treatment of Cypriot patients at specialized Greek medical centres. He stressed that Cyprus and Greece must cooperate very closely in the field of health on the basis of a joint medical pact.

    He added that in this framework they decided that Cypriot patients who need treatment abroad, which cannot be offered in Cyprus, will be referred to specialized private or public medical centres in Greece.

    On his part, Loverdos said that they discussed issues of mutual concern and endorsed Malas reference to a joint medical pact. He said that cooperation between the two countries in the field of transplants is already in place and added that Cyprus is a pioneer country worldwide in the field of kidney transplants.

    He noted that the number of transplants in Greece has fallen during the past years due to false impressions created by the media that official transplant centres may be involved in illegal trafficking of body organs. He noted that in 2011 the number of organ donors increased.

    According to the announcement, 13.000 findings from 20 archeological sites comprise the collection of Cypriot antiquities of the Museum. These findings have been transferred to Sweden, following the conclusion of excavations conducted by the Swedish Archeological Expedition to Cyprus, between 1927 and 1931.

    The presentation was attended by diplomats, Swedish Foreign Ministry and Parliament officials, as well as representatives of the Prime Ministers office. The presentation was made by Dr Kristian Goransson, Cyprus antiquities curator at the Stockholm Mediterranean Museum, the announcement concludes.
