Video info

Date: 2016-09-29 16:59:51
Place: Riga, Latvia
Duration: 2:16

Event description

The action was attended by about 700 people. Doctors are demanding higher wages. Latvian authorities promised to raise the salaries of doctors 2 years ago, however, the money provided for medicine were spent on military issues. The same situation will continue in the future: over the next 3 years the military budget from the current 2% will be raised up to 4%. Unfortunately, increasing the budget for healthcare in Latvia is not provided.

01:55 - 02:16 (LV) Our Government only in words is calling medicine, science and defence a priority. Everything is quite opposite in life. If counting after availability of medical services Latvia is at the 189th place in the world! Even a country like Zimbabwe in Africa is above Latvia!
