Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov 14 /Trend M. Aliyev/
Salaries of doctors in Azerbaijan should be increased next year, chairman of the committee on social policy of the Parliament of Azerbaijan Hadi Rajabli said during the discussions of draft state budget for 2013.
He noted that, in general, the budget provides enough money for health care and social security.
"The slight increase in funds allocated to the social sectors is due to the completion of many costly projects. A lot of work has been done in recent years especially on the effective use of funds allocated to social sectors. However, at the same time, the salary of doctors have to be increased," the chairman of the committee said.
Rajabli noted that social sectors are constantly in the spotlight in Azerbaijan.
At the same time, he expressed concern about the reduction in funding for housing and communal services in the draft state budget for next year.
