Public wants reform but opposes the options

Almost 70 percent of Slovaks disagrees with Health Minister Rudolf Zajac’s proposed health reform, a new survey shows. The Slovak Doctor’s Chamber (SLK) is also opposed to the proposal.

According to the SLK-sponsored survey, which was carried out by the MVK agency, 69.6 percent of respondents say they do not agree with the plan, while only 13.4 support Zajac's measure, the SME daily wrote.

Just recently, a different poll sponsored by the Health Ministry and conducted by CIS agency showed that 27.7 percent are in favour of the proposed health reform. A majority of respondents agreed that the sector needed reforming.
