The Government delivers 2000 million pesos to public health centers
Argentina, September 5, 2012
Liliana Korenfeld, superintendent of Health Services, announced today the launch of a new system to give money to public health centers.
The Government announced the new program SUM (Asymmetries Mitigation Grant) that provides a subsidy of $ 2,000 million pesos to be distributed annually in all the country’s public health centers.
“The goal is to compensate asymmetries, favoring those centers with lower levels of income per member and that have fewer members,” she said during the presentation at a building of the Cabinet Office.
The funds will be financed with a third of the Solidarity Compensation Fund and will have a fixed component and a variable, which depends on the number of members.
Thus Korenfeld requested to the centers the updated information on their standards, arguing that it is “vital to accelerate the process.”
