Czech Health and Labor ministers visit infamous housing estate with MPs
Today the Health Committee and the Social Policy Committee of the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic held a joint session that involved traveling to the northern Bohemian town of Most. The city has recently become the setting for a comedy series on Czech Television that has a high viewership.
The joint session was also attended by Czech Labor and Social Affairs Minister Jana Maláčová and Czech Health Minister Adam Vojtěch. The program included a tour of the infamous Chanov housing estate, which has long been known as a socially excluded locality mostly inhabited by Romani people, and a visit to a regional institution providing care to newborns whose parents cannot care for them.
