The Cabinet has greenlit the establishment of a World Health Organization (WHO) Country Office in Cyprus, as confirmed in a statement released by Health Minister Popi Kanari.

These proposed bills will now head to the House of Representatives for review, marking the initial steps toward securing funding for the office and recruiting personnel.

Kanari's statement underscores the existing identification of specific thematic priorities, which encompass readiness for potential health crises, the preservation of the General Healthcare System's (GHS) sustainability, the formulation of a national mental health strategy, and the management of hospital infections and antimicrobial resistance.

The statement additionally highlights that action plans are already in progress for each of these priority areas.

Kanari expressed optimism regarding the potential for enhanced collaboration with the WHO through the establishment of the country office, anticipating that this development will elevate the quality of healthcare services for citizens and introduce innovative strategies across various healthcare domains.
