ArmInfo. Employees of the Republican Center for AIDS Prevention oppose merging with the Nork Infectious Diseases Clinical Hospital. Recall that the corresponding government decision was made on January 30.
As the head of the epidemiological surveillance department of the Republican Center for AIDS Prevention Arshak Papoyan noted in a conversation with ArmInfo, this decision was made in the light of the lack of specialized discussions with the Center's staff. This fact is of particular concern given the fact that in the republic, in addition to the Center, there is no other specialized organization working in the field of treatment and prevention of AIDS.
The staff of the Center expressed their concern about the situation in an open letter addressed to the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan. , Papoyan noted.
Meanwhile, RA Minister of Health Arsen Torosyan previously commented on the decision to merge the Center and the Nork hospital, promising that this decision would not entail a staff reduction. According to him, scientific achievements and modern international approaches in the fight against AIDS indicate that this issue should be integrated into the national health system. As was noted, the need for separate institutions dealing with the problem of AIDS existed about 40 years ago, when the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome was only detected.
