Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Medical Association (CMD) is again staging a vigil outside the National Palace on Thursday to demand the government allocate 5% of GDP to  the health sector, among  other demands.

National Health Pact (PANASALUD) spokeswoman Analise Carvajal said the government has ignored their demands of a decent wage and pensions for physicians, she said the more than one year of protests, the government has yet to respond.

The health professionals demand of 5% of GDP for the sector hopes to achieve the success of the grassroots movement that obtained 4% of GDP for that sector in legislation.

5% would be real cheap if the doctors were in the practice of curing people instead of treating symptoms. The medical system is a big failure and why give more money to people who cannot do the job of reversing diabetes, arthritis, heart problem, high blood pressure, and all the other chronic problems.
