Medistat Country Reports are ideal for executives wanting to understand the key drivers in medical markets and have access to a wealth of statistical data. Each report opens with an outlook section that provides analysis of the market and, importantly, provides 5-year forecasts by technology category, national data projections, outlook and key developments such as regulation, health facilities and government policy. The report also provides extensive background information, population trends, health status, health expenditure, organisation & administration, hospital services, medical personnel, healthcare development, market access information, trade data and essential industry contacts.

The healthcare sector in Belarus faces all the problems usually associated with conditions in former Soviet countries. The hospital sector is inefficient, underfunded and obsolete, while primary care remains neglected. Hospital budgets rarely allow the purchase of modern equipment, while medical staff are often overspecialised and underpaid.

Unlike most former Soviet countries, moreover, Belarus has made little effort to reform its healthcare system; bed numbers remain very high, and the country continues to train excess medical specialists. Nor have any efforts have been made to introduce a health insurance scheme, which would at least provide some much-needed extra cash. The healthcare situation in Belarus remains very much along Soviet lines, in sharp contrast to central European countries such as Hungary or the Czech Republic, which have placed a far higher priority on healthcare.

The procurement of most medical equipment is undertaken centrally through the state-run firm, Medtechnika. Purchases are funded either by the state budget or from humanitarian aid, where available. The only practical way to enter the market at present is through the appointment of a local agent.
