Bulgaria Health Minister, Anna-Maria Borisova, has stated that there are not enough doctors in Bulgaria, during her speech on International Children’s Day in Sofia.

Borisova was answering children’s’ requests for doctors to return to schools, for the once common check-up procedures. She said; "The children asked for doctors to return to school, but as you know there are not enough doctors in Bulgaria. There is very low pay and no motivation."

Borisova however promised the children that this would happen eventually despite the lack of both doctors and medical specialists in the country. She added that the center-right GERB government will push ahead with much needed health reform to ensure improvement in the health care of all Bulgaria’s citizens.

Meanwhile, Borisova concluded that children in Bulgaria should take vitamins in the winter due to a lack of Vitamin D at this time of year; “"There is a theory that atherosclerosis starts at an early age."
