Poland will see a boost in medical spending after the government approved €626 million for the country’s special Medical Fund, which is meant to support treatments for cancer patients as well as those with the so-called rare diseases, according to statements made by President Andrzej Duda.
The president emphasized the enormous amount of money being used on healthcare expenditures.
“In 2015, it was €17.8 billion and this year, it is €24 billion. Combined with the Medical Fund, this will amount will come close to €24.8 billion to help fight for the health and lives of Poles,” Duda said.
He underlined that the Medical Fund will also support spending on investments in areas where new equipment or introduction of new therapies will be necessary.
He also expected 10 percent of the fund to support prevention treatments.
