To strengthen the public health system, the Hungarian government has adopted the strategy 'Healthy Hungary 2021-2027'. From 2021 onwards, the general GP tasks could be extended to include the tasks of paediatricians, as GPs will also have to pass the relevant examinations. The aim was to ensure high- quality health care also for children living in smaller towns.
