Nicaragua bans public hospitals from charging patients
font size    

The Nicaraguan government on Monday issued a decree, banning the nation's public hospitals from charging patients for better-than-average services.

The order, signed by Health Minister Maritza Cuan Machado, fulfils the government's promise that health care should be free in public health centers and hospitals.

The system of payment for better services was brought in by Violeta Barrios Chamorrow, Nicaragua's president from 2001-06, who also privatized government holdings.

The government also ordered that schooling be free of charge in public schools.
