the ADRES on the support of educational support

A few weeks ago, the request for payment to the Ministry of Health by the country’s medical residents made headlines. Although days later they were normalized, in the last hours the Administrator of the Resources of the General System of Social Security in Health (Adres), directly in charge of these disbursements, updated how they are going.

“The National Government, in its commitment to human talent in health and the promotion of education in the areas of health, highlights that so far this year $35,676,855,261.00 have been transferred to a total of 5,693 medical residents for the concept of monthly educational maintenance support ”, they explained.

Health reform: these are the public hearings that will be held in the country

While the ADRES continues with its normal functions, in the health sector there is also a heated debate for the reform. The same debate that they seek to deepen and take to different parts of the country, which is why Congress is holding a series of public hearings in nine cities across the country.
