73%  of Bulgarians want more investments in healthcare, indicates a survey by Trend polling agency, presented by the Bulgarian Medical Association and the Bulgarian Pharmaceutical Union.

The two organizations state that Bulgarian healthcare is offering a better product than 15 years ago but that we should be making comparisons with the advanced countries, and not with the past, BGNES reports.

“Life expectancy is up by 5 years but Bulgarians live a life 7 years shorter than people in the most advanced countries of the EU,” Dr. Ivan Madzharov, chairman of the Bulgarian Medical Association stated, and added that the Association has asked for more money for medical therapies and for training and renewing of staff. Dr. Madzharov added that primary aid effectivity must be improved.
