Minister of Health of Ukraine Maksym Stepanov considers the current level of salaries of doctors unacceptable - doctors should receive at least $700-800 per month. He stated this during the political talk show "Voice of the People", the press service of the Ministry of Health reported on Facebook.

"I believe that the minimum wage for a doctor should start from $700-800 if we want to have professional doctors with decent working conditions, from whom we will be required to treat us well," Stepanov said.

The Minister recalled that from September 1 of this year, an increase in the salary of doctors by about $140 is provided, although this, in his opinion, is also not enough.

Next year, according to Stepanov, the increase in salaries for medical workers will be laid down in the tariffs for medical services.
