On October 31, President Raul Khadzhimba congratulated the health care workers on the 25th anniversary of the Day of the establishment of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Abkhazia.
The congratulation states, in particular:
“Dear health care workers and veterans of the Patriotic War!
Please accept my sincere congratulations on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Abkhazia.
On this day, allow me to sincerely congratulate everyone who dedicated their life to medicine – an important and responsible work that requires not only academic and practical knowledge but also sincere generosity, sensitivity and responsiveness. The citizens of this state highly value your dedicated service to their health.
On the 25th anniversary of Victory in the Patriotic War, I would like to comment on the contribution of the health care workers - war veterans, who in the fateful time for Abkhazia heroically helped all the injured and fulfilled their duty before the Fatherland.
Today, highly qualified specialists work in all the medical institutions of our state. They have the necessary knowledge and a lot of experience. The older generation of doctors shares their experience with the young generation that has received modern education and serves as their mentors. This allows our medicine to develop dynamically and preserve the continuity of generations at the same time.
I am certain that professionalism, experience, and readiness to come to help will allow you to continue doing your work with full dedication. These qualities will also be useful in the effective implementation of nationwide health priorities.
I wish you future successes in your noble work and to your loved ones and all citizens of our state – health and longevity”.
