Global Heath Care in Minsk
In Belarus there is no compulsary health insurance for citizens, while country is still using a soviet model of the healthcare system. That’s why free medicine is declared by the Constitution of the Republic. Since the beginning of 90th, when Belarus became an independent state, treatment became acceptable almost for all segments of the population.At the present time government spends about 4,5 – 5 % GDP on the maintenance of the National Healthcare system. This amount is the same as in majority of Western European countries.
The network of hospitals inherited from the soviet period was maintained and upgraded. Recently, the priorities from the scope of the wide use of medical interventions to the scope of strengthen primary health care and to the greater emphasis on the development of the doctors and nursing institute have been shifted. Since 2000, the country has worked the state program of strengthening material-technical base of health care. In recent years, this problem was largely solved successfully.
All these factors gave an impetus for the establishment of private medical sector. The prices which are given by private medical centers are adapted to the financial opportunities of Belarusian citizens, while for Europeans they are seems to be too low. It’s also important to take a note that the economic situation in considered countries different strikingly.
