Moldova must provide its citizens with modern medical services, of the highest quality and we will continue working for achieving this goal,’’ Natalia Gavrilita said.

Thus, in October-November, hospitals from Moldova are endowed with advanced rescue equipment – operation tables and birth tables, operation lamps, anesthesia equipment, resuscitation tables for sections of newly born child’s intensive therapy and the gynecology sections.
