“I agree with you that medical institutions should take care of reinvestment and I think they will," said Nikoloz Gamkrelidze, CEO of Evex Medical Corporation.

The point is that, according to the Minister of Health, the clinics that criticize Government Resolution 520 are more oriented on commerce and Ekaterine Tikaradze urges for the reinvestment.

“Health care is generally a business, especially the private sector companies are profitable businesses. I agree that they should take care of the reinvestment and I think they care. I don't consider there has ever been so much investment in the Georgian healthcare system as it has done in recent years, but let's emphasize again that this is a business that has its own social responsibility and burden, as it relates to patients, but also has commercial interests. However, both of them must be well balanced ", - said Gamkrelidze.
