Latvian healthcare disaster, part 4

"Recipe plus", the largest Latvian wholesaler of drugs, stops the supply of drugs to Stradins Clinical University Hospital, one of the two largest hospitals in Latvia, due to the hospital being 0.9 million lats (1.3 million euros) behind in payments.

Other hospitals are badly behind with their payments to suppliers and risk being cut off, as well. The healthcare budget cuts are making the system to fall apart.
