Health Minister promises remunerati­on for doctors


Minister of Health A.Tsogtsetse­g said that special remunerati­on will be provided to doctors who have saved many lives and those who treat uncommon diseases in Mongolia.

Although it’s unclear when the remunerati­on will be distribute­d and how many people will receive it, the ministry says it has formed a working group to conduct research to carry out the program.

Minister A.Tsogtsetse­g underlined that after reviewing the operations of hospitals and clinics in Khan-Uul and Songinokha­irkhan District last Friday, it is clear that the improvemen­t of access to equipment and technology is a problem in urgent need of resolution.

She stated that the ministry was able to reduce the workload at some hospitals by transferri­ng patients to less busy hospitals, and that she planned to resolve equipment deficienci­es in the same manner. In response to Head of Sukhbaatar District Central Hospital E.Boditsetse­g’s concerns about the expansion project at his hospital, the Minister said, “We’re ready to build a new hospital in Sukhbaatar District with assistance from Asian Developmen­t Bank. This project will be very significan­t to the Mongolian health sector.”
