Government Commissioner for the Development of Modern Settlements Alpár Gyopáros stated that when the programme started, village medical practice premises and their medical equipment were outdated, and there was a shortage of general practitioners in rural areas. Along with the renovation of surgeries, their entire equipment was modernised at 1700 locations, and to reduce the shortage of general practitioners, the government launched a programme for medical housing as well.
Government Commissioner responsible for the development of modern settlements Alpár Gyopáros underscored that the government has carried out over two thousand development projects related to healthcare services, including the renovation and construction of outpatient clinics, the replacement of medical equipment, and the creation of housing for physicians and midwives under the framework of the Hungarian Village Programme.
Mihály Varga recalled that during the pandemic, it became evident that Hungary needed to increase its self-sufficiency in the health industry. Therefore, in 2020, the government launched the Healthcare Industry Support Programme, which, among others, has now facilitated Medicor’s investment.
