At the event, representatives of the United States around Universal Healthcare 2023 gave a speech and talked about the main goal of the platform – maximal accessibility of the healthcare system. 

Also, they paid attention to healthcare programs and shared their experiences with each other and noted access to health as a fundamental human right. Therefore it is very important for states to maximize the availability and effectiveness of health care services. 

With partnership and collaboration at the international level, countries will be able to act more effectively, as mentioned at the meeting.

According to the Deputy Minister, the ultimate goal of the document is to create the most effective system of health care. Also – availability of appropriate services and medicines in the country. 

As Tamar Gabunia pointed out in her speech, without ensuring the fundamental human rights to health, it is impossible to achieve other goals of sustainable development for the country, therefore, Georgia is actively implementing reforms in this direction.
