YEREVAN, JULY 19, ARMENPRESS. Armenian healthcare minister Levon
Altunyan had a meeting with his Czech counterpart Miloslav Ludvic.
The ministers discussed the opportunities for expanding cooperation,
namely in the directions of information-analysis, improvement of
e-healthcare systems, development of medical tourism and others.
They also discussed the results of the Chinese Investment Forum 2017,
which was organized in Prague.
The Armenian delegation visited Prague’s Hematology and Blood
Transfusion Institute and the Motol University Clinic, toured the
hospitals and got acquainted with the scientific potential.
Back in 2014, when Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan visited Czech

Armenia’s Yolyan Hematology Center signed a memorandum of cooperation.
Under the memorandum, 10 Armenian doctors trained in the clinic during
the last 3 years. As a result, a rare stem cell recruitment and
successful bone marrow transfusion of two patients was carried out in
Armenia’s Hematology Center.
Afterwards the Armenian delegation participated in the official
