The Association encourages the state to give the public a choice of medical services between private and public health care. In connection with what the entrepreneurs of private medicine ask state to allow them to provide health services in part or entirely by public funds.
Minister of Health of Turkey, Mr. Tahsin Eser conducted a speech at the forum.
