[The problem of licensing healers and ensuring social security of patients]
Development of marketing in public health, cases of poor care of the patients, inadequate legal basis for relations between healers and the state organs responsible for the quality of medical care result in an increase of the number of popular healers, both real and false. The author emphasizes the need of creating as quickly as possible the laws ensuring social protection of a patient from incompetent treatment.
