Poland -Nurses and midwives protest against commercialisation of health care -October 05, 2012

Thousands of nurses and midwives dressed in white uniforms have staged a protest in Warsaw against the health care reforms announced by the ministry. The nurses and midwives object to the proposed public-private partnership schemes, which they say will cost jobs and fail to improve the quality of health care. Recent reports have indicated that the quality of health care is deteriorating, but many hospitals have reported they lack the liquidity to make the investments needed for improvements.
