The Ministry of Health (Albanian: Ministria e Shëndetësisë) is a department of the Cabinet of Albania, charged with the responsibility to oversee the running of Albania's health system, including supporting universal and affordable access to medical, pharmaceutical and hospital services, while helping people to stay healthy through health promotion.[1]

History[edit]

In 1914 Prince William of Wied built a new structure, entrusting the Minister of Health Mihal Turtulli. In 1920 with the government of the Lushnja Congress, was established the structure of the General Directorate of Health (DPSH), which functioned as such until 1944.

The Ministry of Health was founded in 1944 when DPSH became a Ministry. The Ministry had its structure with 21 employees and 175 Albanian and foreign doctors practicing the activity throughout the country.[2]
