Now it is the right time for the Armenian health minister to ask parliament to double the health budget, President Armen Sarkissian said during the webinar.

According to him, after the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be quite difficult to achieve an increase in the health budget by even 10%.

In her turn, first deputy minister Anahit Avanesyan noted that the Armenian health system has been receiving less funding for many years, and thus today there are many problems that need to be addressed in order for the system to start working more efficiently.

But despite all the issues, according to many experts - including international experts - the health care system of Armenia today generally copes with its tasks, the deputy minister added.
