The main aim of the National Health Tourism Conference is to ignite a debate on the future of health tourism services among experienced doctors from health resorts and decision makers, Chairman of the Romanian Society of Physical Medicine and Recovery (SRMFR) Mihai Berteanu told a news conference on Friday.
He announced that the Health Ministry signed an order for the establishment of a working group that will draw up a new health tourism law.
Doctor Delia Cinteza, Director of the National Institute for Health Tourism and Recovery, explained that 91 percent of the Romanian health resorts turned private and the owners, under the legislation in force, have to meet certain requirements regarding the content of therapeutic agents, which have to be tested at regular intervals.
The institute is empowered to take action on its own accord if problems emerge about the therapeutic agents.
Cinteza underscored that it is important for the relevant European standards to be observed, because Romania does have legislation in this sense but it is ignored.
