Republic of Moldova

The WHO Country Office in the Republic of Moldova was established in 1995, in Chisinau. The original goal was to provide continuous support to health authorities and partners in improving population health through evidence-based, sustainable public health and health care interventions as well as to advice on health in all policies. Over the years the Office has been the focal point for all WHO activities in the Republic of Moldova. In 2011 the WHO Country Office profile was upgraded. The Office is now under the leadership of a WHO Representative/Head of Country Office and is scaling up the level of activities to support national policy development.
