Bulgarian Cabinet approves medical co-operation with China

The Bulgarian Cabinet has approved a three-year plan for mutual assistance and co-operation between the Bulgarian Health Ministry and its Chinese counterpart, a Government media statement said.

The collaboration will be in the spheres of advanced medical reforms, combating of infectious diseases, the ongoing fight against AIDS, swine and bird flu as well as the application of traditional Chinese medicine and other fields.

Bulgaria and China are poised to organise interrelated specialised units, to set up scientific conferences aimed to exchange and facilitate know-how, as well as come up with strategies and developments in medicine, as well as “the implementation of short term programmes”.

Medical experts are to be sent on exchange expertise trips between both countries for a period of 30 days annually, the report says.
