Polish gov’t plans free medication for pregnant women

Pregnant women will be eligible for free medication under a new pro-family programme being readied by the Polish government, the country’s health ministry has said.

Under the programme, dubbed “Pregnancy+," women will have access to free pharmaceuticals to treat pregnancy-related conditions, the health ministry said on its website.

It added that the aim was to ensure the health of expectant mothers and their children.

Prescriptions for such free medication will be issued by general practitioners as well as gynecologists providing care as part of the public health system, according to the health ministry.

Public broadcaster TVP has cited Deputy Health Minister Józefa Szczurek-Żelazko as saying that the new programme would be part of the government’s pro-family policy.

Some 380,000 women country-wide are expected to benefit from the programme every year.

Poland's president in May signed into law a plan by the country’s governing conservatives to offer benefits to all families with children under their expanded “Family 500+” initiative.

A recent study has ranked Poland 23rd among 31 wealthy OECD and EU countries in terms of family-friendly policies.

Poland spends 2.7 percent of its GDP on state benefits for families and children—one of the highest figures in the 28-nation European Union, according to a newspaper.
