MINSK, 22 May (BelTA) – Healthcare Minister Vasily Zharko suggests using the Belarusian healthcare system as pilot space for the projects of the World Health Organization. The Belarusian official made this statement at a plenary meeting of the 66th session of the World Health Assembly on 21 May, BelTA learnt from the Foreign Ministry of Belarus.
