They oppose reform of medical institutions in the city .
The relevant question is presently discussed by local MPs. Protesters emphasize that the Parliament registered a bill to introduce a moratorium on the closure of hospitals therefore the City Council has no right to make any decision before it is considered by the Parliament. In late September in Chernihiv two centers of primary health care were created to initiate implementation of the medical reform in the city of Chernihiv. The local authority says that the aim of the changes is to improve the effectiveness and accessibility of health services for the population.
