“Instead of realising the importance of strengthening the public health sector in primary care, hospital care and intensive care, their announcements put a gravestone on the national health system after abolishing fundamental principles,” it underlined.

The federation demanded that no employee on a fixed-term contract be fired, that there should be no return of contractors to hospitals, noting that they “cost the public sector 30-50 pct more than the fixed-term contracts while offering half the money that the employees employed there are entitled to receive.”
