The Republic of Moldova has embarked on a Primary Health Care (PHC) modernization initiative, in order to strengthen its overall health system to make it more equitable, inclusive and fair. The initiative has originated from the Prime Minister’s office, and the Ministry of Health (MoH) has requested WHO for assistance. WHO has been working with the MoH to implement a roadmap for the development of the PHC strategy. The strong commitment of the highest political leadership to the modernisation of the health sector is unmistakeable, as is the impatience of authorities to move fast. This rather supportive context provides an opportunity for in-depth policy dialogues and innovative approaches to the modernisation of Moldova’s primary health sector, all the more so since work on reforming the hospital as well as the public health sector in the Republic of Moldova is already going on and reliant on modernization of primary and ambulatory care.

During this webinar WHO Representative and Head of the Country Office of the Republic of Moldova, Haris Hajrulahovic, together with Professor and Head of the Department of Family Medicine at the State University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Nicolae Testemitanu” Dr Ghenadie Curocichin, will be interviewed by WHO Expert at the WHO European Centre for Primary Health Care in Almaty, Kazakhstan Dr Pavlos Theodorakis with the aim to discuss:

i)  The context in which PHC modernization process in the Republic of Moldova is taking place as the cornerstone of a large scale health system transformation

ii)  The achievements and failures of the ongoing efforts the last two decades towards the establishment of family medicine after the disintegration of the former Soviet Union; and finally

iii)  The next steps towards the development of a PHC strategy with a forward-looking vision.
