Ano: Leave health care to us

The Ano party of media baron Pavol Rusko has said that ideas on reforming the health care system differ so widely among the parties likely to form the next government coalition that Ano should be given complete control over the task.

Ano’s Rudolf Zajac, a health care expert who has published widely in expert journals and domestic media, claims to have a reform strategy that would not increase costs but would raise efficiency. The system at the moment loses billions of crowns a year through over-capacity and poor use of resources.
