Facing poor healthcare conditions, more Romanians seek medical help abroad


According to statistics from the Vienna Chamber of Commerce, Romanians paid EUR250 million for tests and treatment in Austria. 60% of the Romanian patients sought innovative treatments against cancer, and 10% had medical checks or a second opinion. Hospitals in Austria have now hired Romanian translators.

Romanians go abroad because of Romania's poor health system that does not offer modern treatment or specialist treatment such as for cancer.
