Macedonian Health Minister Nikola Todorov, with the help of the courts has won the battle against the announced strike of doctors in the public health system, but he failed to solve the problem, the daily says. A court in Skopje upheld the request of the Health Ministry to temporarily ban an announced strike by doctors set for Monday arguing that this would leave patients unattended. However, medics said they would appeal and set a new date for a strike.
