Clinical Center welcomes Ukrainian Minister of Health
Ukrainian health leader discusses collaboration, recovery
Ukraine's Minister of Health, Dr. Viktor Liashko, visited the NIH Clinical Center in mid-December to discuss his country's health needs.
"While we're fighting and [engaging] in combat activities on the frontline," said Liashko through a translator during the Dec. 12 visit, "we're also as an institution thinking about how to improve and develop our health system and we're thinking about research and development and all the potential we'll be able to explore with our partners."
