Cyprus and Spain to cooperate on organ donation

Health Minister George Pamboridis and his Spanish counterpart Dolors Montserrat discussed the issue of organ donation while meeting in Spain.

According to a Ministry of Health statement,  the meeting saw the two Ministers reviewing the two countries’ general relations on health issues with organ donation taking up a large part of the discussion because of Spain’s position as one of the largest and most organised organ donor record-keepers in Europe.
