MOTIVES
The proposed amendment affects the ability to access free
medications for two of the most risky in terms of their health,
groups:
 children under 7 years of age
 citizens over 65 with chronic diseases.
The reasons for the proposals are:
Bulgaria ranks second in mortality of children under 1 year of age in Europe by 7.8
promiles for North and South region that has a two-digit value
expression. The high mortality rate is caused by various diseases, but
continue after the age of one year old. Grant award
of medicines for children up to 7 years old will involve providing
specific help for parents in raising children, and essential
contribution to the successful implementation of the strategy to fight demographic crisis
Republic Of Bulgaria. Will allow equal access for all families with young children
drugs needed to treat their illness, notwithstanding the
financial resources of the parents and will have a significant effect especially for those with
low income.
For the second group - citizens over 65 years of age with chronic illnesses award
free of medicaments for the treatment of the underlying disease is of
essential for the following circumstances:
 Bulgaria ranks first in Europe in some of the most serious chronic diseases:
diabetes and disease states associated with the cardiovascular system. Both
leading to a sharp reduction of the duration and quality of life, as are
highly lethal.
 As a rule, these people are pensioners with very low incomes. This
a fact too often forces patients to refuse to purchase drugs
financial reasons, resulting in a sharp deterioration of their health
state and outlook for life. We therefore believe that free grant
Medicines for chronic disease leading to some degree will lead to
significantly improving their treatment, quality of life and
life perspective.
The financial need of funds for the realization of both of our proposals
very difficult to calculate due to the absence of the necessary data
statistical surveys. Conversations that we had with ex-ministers
Health, representatives of the Ministry of Finance, Presidents of
Parliamentary Committees on Health and representatives of the system
social health insurance showed a range of necessary funds 30 -
50 million. Lev, but they may have another dimension.
