  • January 2022: Churches Call for Changes in Health Law

The Ministry of Health has submitted an amendment to the Health Care Act to introduce systematic long-term and palliative care in Slovakia, including sub-support for mobile hospices and home nursing care agencies. Nearly 400 comments were received on the draft law, including requests from the Catholic Church (Slovak Bishops’ Conference) to extend health care to include spiritual care and to include priests in the category of health care workers. This is the third attempt in the last twelve months to legislate for spiritual care in institutional health care facilities.
