  • Regulatory Body
    The Cyprus Nursing and Midwifery Council is a division of the Ministry of Health in Cyprus. Its purpose is to regulate the nursing profession and midwifery.
  • Health System
    The Ministry of Health is responsible mainly for the organization of the health care system in Cyprus and the provision of state-financed health care services.

    The ultimate objective of the organization is to promote and protect people’s health. The Ministry of Health formulates national health policies, coordinates the activities of both the private and the public sector, regulates health care standards and promotes the enactment of relevant legislation.

    As Cyprus has not introduced a National Health Insurance System, the provision of health services is not concentrated on one central authority. Instead there are five types of coverage; public health provision, private health provision, funds for medical care by employers and trade unions, scheme for sponsored patients abroad and private health insurance schemes.
