Zimbabwe and Belarus have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, (MOU) in healthcare which will see the two countries strengthening ties in various medical fields.

The MOU, signed between Zimbabwe’s Ministry of Health and Childcare and Belarus’ Ministry of Healthcare contains agreements on the training of doctors, students, and teachers.

It also provides for postgraduate training as well as a supply of medical drugs and equipment.

Zimbabwe’s Minister of Health and Childcare, Dr Douglas Mombeshora highlighted that the main objective of the delegation’s visit to Belarus is to expand cooperation in the medical sphere.

“We are mainly talking about the supply of medicines for various purposes, training specialists both in Belarus and Zimbabwe. We are also interested in the achievements of Belarusians in terms of baby food, and finally, technology, especially in telemedicine,” he said.

Belarus’s Deputy Healthcare Minister, Mr Boris Androsyuk showcased his country’s advancement in medical care, highlighting their ability to fully equip medical facilities.

“Domestic manufacturers showed their developments to their foreign colleagues. This includes the equipment that we supply not only to our clinics, but also to clinics in more than 30 foreign countries. We can fully equip the resuscitation and surgical departments. We make the world’s most demanded supplies for haemodialysis, which have been registered abroad.

We showed the guests from a friendly country the medicines we produce. They are much cheaper than their foreign counterparts. We are ready to help our foreign friends. We can equip clinics, pharmacies, and pharmacy warehouses to provide full-fledged assistance to the population of Zimbabwe and neighbouring countries,” he said.

The Zimbabwean delegation’s visit included tours of Belarusian medical institutions where they learnt about advanced care methods for premature babies at the Republican Scientific and Practical Centre for Mother and Child.

They also received an update on innovative cancer treatment approaches at the Alexandrov National Cancer Centre in Minsk.
