Economics of health-care system is an extremely important independent area of public health. Efficiency of health-care system is much determined by the level of professional training on economics and financial management of public health. The need for professional development considerably exceeded the possibilities of the course of economics and accounting that was at first included in the Department of Public Health and Healthcare Management.

In pursuance of the Council decision of Ministry of Health of the Republic of Belarus of 29.03.2006 ?5/6 “On work results of departmental control and financial and economic activity of health care organizations for 2005 and tasks for 2006” on grounds of requests of practical healthcare with a view to improving the professional development quality in health care economics, in 2006 the Department of economics and accounting in health care system was established by restructuring Department of Public Health and Health Care Management.

There was no experience of establishing of such kind of department neither in medical nor in other universities of the Republic of Belarus. Although there are analogous departments of economics in health care system in majority of medical institutes as well as in academies of post-graduate education in countries of CIS, Western Europe and America.

The work of economics and accounting course laid the foundation for further development of the Department. On a base of the Council decision of Ministry of Health of the Republic of Belarus of 22.02.2000 the course of economics and accounting in health care system was organized in BelMAPO by the Department of hygiene, economics and health care management (currently – the Department of public health and health care). The first classes were held in November 2000. Associate professor, Candidate of Medicine O. Kulpanovich, senior teacher E. Lihtarovich worked on the course, leading specialists of the Ministry of Health, Finance and State Property.

The aim of the Department is the improvement of professional knowledge in the basics of economic relations in health care system, financial management, accounting, methodology of planning and economic analysis.
