KHARTOUM, Sudan - Turkey`s Ministry of Health inaugurated an office in the Sudanese capital Khartoum on Thursday, in an attempt to ease the cooperation on health management between the two countries.
Turkeyâ€™s Health Minister Mehmet Muezzinoglu and Deputy Prime Minister Emrullah Isler inaugurated the office, which will be used as a contact office.
Muezzinoglu said at the opening ceremony that Turkey would share its experience on health management with Sudan, in particular after the Turkish Coordination and Cooperation Agency (TIKA) opened a new hospital in the South Darfurâ€™s capital Nyala.
Turkey has increased its aid efforts over the last decade, with aid rising from $85 million in 2002 to over $1.25 billion in 2012. TIKA has 35 branches around the world and runs operations in 110 countries.
