This has been foreseen in the plan for 2015-2016 adopted by the Lithuanian Health Minister Rimantė Šalaševičiūtė and the Moldovan Health Minister Andrei Usatii. Based on the plan both countries have agreed to enhance co-operation in the area of health care.

Representatives of Lithuanian and Moldovan health care systems will be able to share experience regarding the EU directives under implementation and ongoing health care reforms in the areas of primary health care, health care funding and insurance, public health, promotion of healthy lifestyle and prevention of addictions, control and prevention of contagious diseases, pharmacy etc.

The two countries plan to hold theoretic and practical qualification development courses for health care specialists. Medical higher education institutions, medical centres, health care establishments should also strengthen health care system by upholding direct relations.

It is hoped that information about the newest medical technologies and innovations, e-health development, common bilateral co-operation projects and other forms of co-operation will help the two countries to achieve progress in the health care sector.
