Alexandru Rafila: Ministry of Health has not lost money for hospitals

Published on

The Ministry of Health did not lose the money from the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) for the construction of hospitals, Health minister Alexandru Rafila said on Monday, specifying that all 27 objectives will be achieved.

„All this demagoguery that the Ministry of Health or Romania lost the money was nothing more than a mechanism that had been agreed upon from the beginning, since this European Recovery and Resilience Program existed, whereby a certain economic growth conditioned a certain amount. The problem is that this was used very politically and demagogically so as to say that, for example, the Ministry of Health lost money. No. For once, we did not lose the money. Second, all 27 objectives will be achieved. If additional funds are needed, they will be acquired,” the Minister of Health declared for Euronews Romania.

Asked why Romania has failed to build hospitals, Alexandru Rafila answered: „I think it’s for the same reason we haven’t built motorways. It’s exactly the same reason, we got stuck either in the public procurement procedures or in the deadlines that had to be respected for the use of foreign money”.
