General “Black Out” in Healthcare

Doctors, nurses, hospital staff and ambulance drivers from across the country demonstrated outside the Health Ministry on Friday in protest to what they called the collapse of the country™s health system following the cutbacks in funding, staff and supplies.
In a press conference, representatives of doctors and employees described the dramatic situation of the national healthcare system (ESY) and national healthcare provider (EOPYY) “falling apart” and over 1.5 million uninsured and unemployed citizens. The president of the public hospital doctor federation (OENGE) Dimitris Varnavas explained that the drastic reduction of inoculations increased chances of outbreaks and a humanitarian crisis.
The Greek protesters were joined by health unions from France, Belgium and Portugal. The foreigners came to support the Greek workers fearing similar cutbacks would occur in their countries.
