Government officials attending a meeting in Kavala on Macedonia and Thrace Region health-sector projects on Saturday were met by a crowd of protestors that booed at the gathered ministers and MPs, shouting anti-government and anti-Parliament slogans.
The meeting was held to discuss projects either financed by or due to be included in National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) programmes. It was attended by Deputy Health and Social Solidarity Minister Mihalis Timosidis, the Macedonia region authority's head Aris Yiannakidis, and Deputy Health Minister Christos Aidonis. It was also attended by local hospital administrators, heads of health centres, local government officials and MPs.
The total cost of the projects that will finally be included in NSRF programmes is close to 100 million euro and includes the construction or renovation of building facilities, provision of modern technological equipment, purchase of ambulances and modernisation of existing laboratory and other auxiliary facilities.
