Health Ministry Andreas Xanthos in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) on Sunday said that the government is seeking the right balance on the ministry’s expenses. He condemned the period before the memorandum when expenses rocketed as well as the memorandum period with the strict limitations.
He underlined that the 2019 budget provides for a 45 million euro increase in hospital medicine expenditure.
The minister also referred to the draft law which aims to solve serious problems and issues of the social health system. He stressed that despite what was heard, the health system is still intact, reliable and accessible to everyone.
