Turkey signed a cooperation agreement with the World Health Organization (WHO) in order to increase quality of the health policies successfully implemented in Turkey.
The protocol setting the framework of the cooperation areas was signed by Health Minister Dr. Ahmet Demircan and WHO Regional Director for Europe Zsuzsanna Jakab.
Dr. Ahmet Demircan stated that Turkey was providing many services to almost 4 million refugees and added that “Concerning this issue, EU has not performed the undertaken and committed actions. We believe that WHO will do whatever it requires to warn the relevant countries. Turkey must be taken as an example, without doubt, but the necessary support should be provided as well.”
Stating that Turkey carried out many successful activities in various fields, Ms. Jakab added that “Especially orientation trainings organized for the Syrian healthcare professionals are among the developments we highly appreciate and show as an example for the entire world. I thank you for all these.”
