Crisis: Greece; pharmacists to go on a 48-hour strike

06 March, 11:01
(ANSAmed) - ATHENS, MARCH 6 - The Panhellenic Pharmaceutical Association (PFS), at the end of a long meeting, decided unanimously yesterday to go on a 48-hour strike next week. The strike on March 10 and 11 will be the answer to troika's claims of the market's opening for non-prescription drugs, as GreekReporter writes. Next Tuesday, pharmacists are expected to meet anew in order assess the developments and decide on a course of action. The President of the PFS, Kyriakos Theodosiadis, urged the Greek government to adopt the positions of Greece's Minister of Health Adonis Georgiadis concerning troika as well as to dismiss the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) report concerning the pharmaceutical care. "Everyone can realize that competition and health are two concepts incompatible with each other. We denounce that this report can neither be the government's gospel nor a new memorandum-product, prefabricated in command of the large interests which it apparently serves," noted Theodosiadis.
