Patients’ Federation Aims for Government Response

The Cyprus Federation of Patients’ Associations (OSAK) is pushing for urgent healthcare reforms, including consideration for patients needing treatment abroad, the establishment of an independent Ambulance Authority, and the inclusion of all rehabilitation centers within the national health scheme. President Nikos Christodoulides and Health Minister Michael Damianos have shown receptiveness to OSAK’s demands, signaling potential progress towards a more patientcentric healthcare system in Cyprus.
