Golikova acknowledges corruption in Russian medicineMinister for Health and Social Development of Russia, Tatyana Golikova, has acknowledged corruption in Russian medicine.
"Unfortunately, I have to recognize the facts when certain medical procedures are carried out only on condition that they have been paid for. It is impossible to change the situation with the bribes, which has been evolving for decades, in one year. I do not know how to make patients relinquish the desire to thank the doctor, but, on the other hand, this custom has a corruption component. Still, we do not have enough law enforcement officers to catch everyone in the act", said Golikova in a live interview on radio station Ekho Moskvy.
