During an activity organized on the occasion of International Women’s Day, the Albanian minister of Health and Social Protection, Ogerta Manastirliu has confirmed that the government will make pay rises in the healthcare system.
“We will continue to improve working conditions in our health centers and in our hospitals in order for you to do your job better. We will continue to increase salaries in 2018 for doctors and nurses. Our engagement in this aspect is continuous”, Manastirliu said.
The pay rise in question follows the one that was made in March last year, which benefited a category of doctors. One of the main reasons for the increase in the salaries of doctors also relates to the fact that many doctors and nurses are leaving the country and moving to EU countries for better working conditions and for a better pay. /balkaneu.com/
