Socialist MEP Presses Hungary to Join European Health Union

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.08.03.

Socialist Party (MSZP) MEP István Ujhelyi urged Hungary to join the European Health Union at an online press conference on Sunday.

Ujhelyi noted that the European Health Union – an initiative by the European Parliament to engage in far stronger cooperation in the area of health – would establish minimum conditions for health care, ensuring access to basic health-care services which is a human right.

Ujhelyi also pressed the government to publish a broad study on the state of health care in Hungary and consult with professional organisations on the results. He said a well-known international consultancy has been commissioned by the government to produce the study by August 7.
