A ceremony of awarding diplomas and cash prizes to people who work in the field of healthcare took place at the Regional House of Culture in Taraclia. The event was held on the occasion of the Medical Workers Day, which is celebrated in Moldova on the third Sunday of June.

The heads of the medical institutions and local authorities addressed congratulatory messages to the staff of Taraclia’s healthcare establishments, presenting them with certificates and monetary awards for their professionalism and tireless work. The most eminent professionals were awarded diplomas by the Ministry of Health.

"Our biggest problem, not just in the region but across the country, is the lack of medical personnel. Our hospital is about 30-35% staffed with doctors. If we look at the statistics from 2000, there were 53 doctors in the hospital, and now we have 14. Last year, we talked to the rector of our medical university, who said that about 500 people graduate from the university, half of whom immediately go to Romania because the salary there is 5 or even 6 times higher. I would not say that the working conditions are much better than ours. The doctors who stayed in the region live on the job," the director of the Taraclia regional hospital, Artur Kovacs, told BTA's correspondent. According to him, the hospital serves a population of approximately 50,000 people. According to local media, by 2023, the average monthly salary of a doctor in Moldova is about BGN 2,000, and that of orderlies - almost BGN 800.
