Protesters rally seeking better conditions in Romanian Health care

Thousands of health care workers held a protest in Romania’s capital on Thursday, demanding higher wages, more staff, and better working conditions amid what they say are shortfalls that will lead to declining medical service standards.Medical workers from across the country converged on central Bucharest, where they blew whistles, honked horns, and waved flags. Some brandished signs that read: “Only together we can succeed.”
The “Health Solidarity” Federation which organised the protest said it was concerned that a “decline in real wages driven by inflation” would lead to a “decrease in the quality of health care” in Romania, which joined the European Union in 2007.
“Previous wage increases have driven higher quality of health services, with wage spending proving to be the best investment for public health,” the federation said in a press release.
