23 June 2020
The Office of the High Commissioner made this initiative possible, with the close collaboration of the Ministry of Health, and the French Embassy to Armenia.
“This is the second group of doctors from France to come to Armenia with the direct involvement of our office. We are glad to have two Armenian doctors in this group, including the leader of the group who is famous French-Armenian doctor Laurent Papazian, and intensive care specialist Dr. Hayk Vardanyan. In this way, our Diaspora specialists are also taking part in such initiatives," stated Zareh Sinanyan, adding that discussions are underway with Armenian doctors from the United States, Ukraine, and other countries in order to involve them in similar missions to Armenia.
“Our local doctors welcomed their international colleagues with open arms. Looking at the results of the previous group, I can say that a wonderful cooperation took place. Of course, we have to ensure continuity, so today, this group will meet the previous group and they will share their impressions and experiences. A lot of effort is being made in order to make such initiatives possible,” stated Deputy Minister of Health, Anahit Avanesyan.
Nine doctors from the best medical institutions in Paris and Marseilles will carry out their mission at St. Gregory the Illuminator Hospital, and Traumatology and Orthopedics Research Center.
