Agnès Buzyn, France’s Minister of Solidarity and Health, and Serge Telle, Monaco’s Minister of State, have signed a cooperation agreement on health safety and a second agreement on the treatment of blood products.

The framework agreement, signed July 13, is intended to formalise the pre-existing Franco-Monegasque agreements in health surveillance, the provision of emergency health facilities and the pooling of prevention and treatment. It also allows Monaco to be integrated into the PACA health crisis mechanism so that the Principality can fully commit itself to International Health Regulations of the World Health Organisation.

The agreement on blood products will enable the French Blood Establishment to ensure the treatment of blood collected by the Blood Transfusion Centre of the Princess Grace Hospital Centre of Monaco. This is intended to respond in the most effective way to the needs for blood products while respecting a high level of transfusion safety and ethical collection.

The signing of these two health accords is viewed by both countries as a major step forward in cross-border cooperation in health security.
