Tbilisi City Hall to fund treatment of multiple sclerosis – Kakha Kaladze

Tbilisi City Hall has initiated the funding program for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis. According to the Mayor Kakha Kaladze, the program will be launched in March 2020.

“Current year budget will be administered across two central concerns - the advancement of infrastructure and healthcare/social issues.

For years, patients with multiple sclerosis have appealed to the Georgian government to make the treatment more available to them. They have likewise been stressing the need for timely diagnosis and adequate treatment.

With timely and adequate treatment patients can return to a full-fledged lifestyle in the family and society as a whole.
On average, GEL 24 000 will be allocated for each patient. Socially vulnerable persons will be fully funded. The rest will receive an 80% coverage”, - said Kaladze.
