Health Minister Richard Raši, who is taking part on a official visit to Beijing headed by Speaker of Slovak Parliament Pavol Paška, met Chinese Deputy Health Minister Liu Qian on November 20 to discuss the health care systems in China and Slovakia.

"We'd like to support the communication, development, exchange of experts and information in the field of the traditional Chinese medicine," Raši explained.

Interested doctors and medical students will have the opportunity to learn about these areas, Raši said, and he offered to educate Chinese medical students at Slovak universities. Both politicians discussed the state of their respective health care systems. While Slovakia allocates approximately 7 percent of its state budget to health care, in China it is only about 3 percent and many people, especially in the remote country areas, don't have access to basic care.

The Chinese government has, however, prepared a plan to improve this situation, Raši said. TASR
