On January 27, 2021, within the framework of the public discussion, TI Bulgaria sent a proposal to the Minister of Health for the supplementation and development of the proposed project for National Health Strategy 2021-2030. The main highlights are increasing patient satisfaction and linking the rating system for medical institutions with the introduction of the Business Integrity Standards.

As long as the proposals made are in line with the main objectives proclaimed in the Strategy, we believe that the introduction of Business Integrity Standards through the National Health Strategy 2021-2030 will improve the management conditions in the Healthcare sector to the benefit of both the patients and the key players in the health service sector. This letter serves as a good start and a foundation in the dialogue with the Ministry of Health, which we hope to continue both in the period of adoption of the Strategy and in its implementation into concrete measures.
