The Medical Trade Unions Association (LOZ) is launching an anti-corruption campaign with the slogan: 'Thanks, I don't accept bribes', the TASR newswire learned at a LOZ press conference on Monday, August 13.

LOZ wants to persuade as many doctors as possible to wear badges with the aforementioned slogan on their lapels so that they can publicly declare their opposition to bribes. Patients will be able to find out on the internet whether their doctor is participating in the campaign or not. LOZ has also asked representatives of the Interior Ministry to set up an anti-corruption telephone line through which people can complain about doctors who try to elicit bribes. Patients will also be given advice on how to behave when they find themselves in such a situation.
