National Public Health Agency set up in Moldova

The state health control will be carried out by a single authority, National Public Health Agency. A decision in this regard was taken at a today’s cabinet meeting. 

Thus, the duties currently held by the National Public Health Centre, National Health Insurance Company, Transplant Agency, Medicines and Medical Devices Agency and Standing Committee on Drugs Control will be taken over by the new institution. It is part of the government’s actions to reduce the pressure on the business environment and supports entrepreneurs who want to work in the health sector.

The National Public Health Agency will be responsible for overseeing several areas, including public health, occupational safety, quality of medicines, para-pharmaceutical products and their circulation. The institution will also control medical devices, including their radiological and nuclear safety, services provided by medical institutions and circulation of narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances and precursors.

At the same time, the institution will ensure the respect of consumer rights in health. These duties are now exercised by the National Food Safety Agency and Agency for Consumer Protection.
