The First Results of the Health Monitor




Press Release

The First Results of the Health Monitor


It is with great pleasure that we announce the addition of the “Health Monitor” as a new complementary feature to our web page http://www.mkiellinikou.org.  Through this new link, our volunteers try to report the most significant recent facts pertaining to the field of Greek public health as such issues are published in the mass media.  Our sources consist of press reports, but also complaints that reach independent volunteer community clinics, all of which have been cross checked.

The aim of the Health Monitor is to be a means for a user to absorb quickly and simply any information that has to do with the Greek Public Health and the policies around it as they have been formed in our country during this economic crisis. 

We started gathering information in experimentally in July of 2013 and have re-doubled our efforts in 2014.  We try to add to this data-base of information so that it reflects a clear picture of Greek public health which is steadily deteriorating because of the inhuman policies that the Troika dictates.

The content of the Monitor is provided freely and each report is verified by its source - which is listed next to the report.  In cases where specific complaints are made by or of individuals or organizations, the responsibility for verifying such accusations rests with the pertinent community clinics involved.

We chose to record only real and verified events and to discard rumors and other sources of information.  Because we are volunteers and have to carefully allocate our time, we focus strictly on recent events accompanied by their source.

The reports are monthly and are divided into 13 categories:  Public Health, The Greek National Health System, the Uninsured, the Destitute, Statistics, Cancer Patients, HIV/AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes, Mental Health, Mobilization of Medical Staff, and Volunteer Community Clinics.

Our reports are monthly as well as yearly.  To make it easier to follow items of interest, there is an option to select certain categories each month.  It’s understood that every item can apply to more than one category.  Our subject-categories may increase in the future.  For example, if we get more information, we may be obliged to add a category on hypertension patients.

We hope to be able to go on improving the monitor.  If your have observations, recommendations or complaints, email mkie.paratiritirio@gmail.com.
