South Korea and three Central Asian countries agreed to expand health care areas based on information and communication technology (ICT) that will help further strengthen ties in the medical sector, the government said Tuesday. President Moon Jae-in’s latest visits and summit meetings with leaders of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan have made it easier for local medical institutions and health care-related companies to make inroads into the nations, according to the Ministry of Health and Welfare.

 

The three Central Asian countries are working on reforming their health and medical care sectors and want to work with Seoul in various fields, it said. ICT-based health care is designed to help enhance the quality of health care services and compile key data on patients, as well as reduce overall administrative costs and promote efficiency. South Korea also agreed with the three countries on the exchange of medical personnel, drugs and equipments, the ministry said.
