He also insisted on fighting corruption in government health institutions and upgrading hospitals. “ We must put an end to the scourge affecting the health sector… The right to health is a human right… We must supervise and care in the same way as in private clinics and hospitals… No to the death of the poor and the treatment of them with money “, she said. A phrase that the director of the hospital on answered: ” Oh yes! By the grace of God… I noticed that there was a sense of belonging to the establishment “.

” Our doctors travel to Europe by the hundreds. Wondering who lends to the other? We lend you Where do you lend us money? Training doctors and specialists costs money. At the end of the day, you are hiring the cream of the crop, whether it is for the medical sector or for other… Those who arrived in 1962 and 1963 were the pioneers… They believed in public facilities… They were all leaders… They were all settled in France and married to French women… They came back… The state must guarantee the conditions for a dignified life said the head of state.
The President of the Republic also visited the amphitheater located inside the hospital and used for academic courses. He then visited a part under renovation. ” Today, pharmacies are built without taking into account the function of this business… We make people wait outside in the rain… Whoever built it is ignorant of the importance of a waiting room… Other people are calling for the establishment of a medical faculty instead of asking for a hospital and doctors…. The medical city of Kairouan has all the necessary structures: hospitals, schools, gardens, playgrounds, houses, a CNAM office! We now need to find the financing required », he added.
Quay Said confirmed that the funds to create the medical city were available. However, some people blocked the process due to internal conflict. He suggested that the latter was devoid of patriotism. He assured that the absence of a real will led to a block of five years while the funds were available.
