Domingo Moreno, president of this association, assured this Saturday, July 6th, that this new code admits modifications, which is why they do not consider it appropriate as it should be.
The Government said the updates to the Health Code are necessary by arguing it is now outdated, as it dates back from 1947. In fact, they extended the consultation period for this subject until the end of July.
Moreno said the document opens the door to the private sector to handle the privatization of health in the country, when the State must be responsible for this.
He even questioned that if progress has reached the country why forget the health and education sectors, whose proposals have been taken into account with apathy, contempt and reluctance by the current government administration headed by the President of the Republic, Ricardo Martinelli.
THE CASE OF THE NEWBORNS
In another topic, the leader of the Comenenal referred to the case of the eight newborns who died in the Neonatology Room of the Arnulfo Arias Madrid Hospital from the Social Security Fund.
He said he has noticed the investigations have been slow for this case. Moreno said it seems like the Government wants to “lower the temperature of the problem" and the mothers and relatives of these infants need explanations. (Prensa)
