  • Regulatory Body
    In 2005 the law on health care was approved by the National Assembly and the State.  This will explore the feasibility of introducing a health professions council.

    Currently, nurses and midwives are authorized by the Ministry of Health to practise after due verification.

    The Ministry of Health (MOH) is the Regulatory Authority Body for Registration.  A licensing system does not yet exist.
