They need firm and clear solutions and this is what I intend to do, together with my colleagues in the ministry - to come to their aid, and everything that has been done well so far will continue. I unfailingly stand by the commitments I have made as Secretary of State in the Ministry of Health: restoring the health infrastructure, supporting the outpatient segment and family medicine, as well as allocating funding on objective criteria. Depoliticizing the health system will be an essential point of my mandate," Ioana Mihaila was quoted as saying.
