Dr Felicia Elena Buruiana – Tarus Media Health Debates, Bruxelles, 12 April 2010

The event brought together stakeholders from all EU sectors. The conclusion was that one of the ways to improve the Romanian Healthcare system is to generate alternative financing resources, communication, a dialogue about healthcare reforms and a smart lobby. One of the challenges of the improvement is innovation.
