“I am sure it is unfair … There is no such situation anywhere in the world. And we have lived in this state for 30 years. I am convinced that we must raise wages, make the profession of paramedic, doctor, doctor. We must not forget that our doctors travel massively abroad, we can find ourselves in a situation where they all leave and are right. Because the State cannot treat them like that “said Stepanov.
He added that raising wages is an important part of medical reform.
