TBILISI, DFWatch – The president in Georgia promises health insurance for all large families from 2013.

Mikheil Saakashvili was making his annual address to parliament February 28.

He noted that after establishing this system in Georgia, one out of two will be insured.

The law defines a ‘large family’ as having 5 or more children.

Saakashvili added that from 2013, when a family receives a third child it will receive a one-time money allotment of one thousand lari, or about 600 US dollars. In case of a fourth or more child, the family will receive 2 000 lari, about 1 200 dollars.
