Rabat - The Medical Assistance Plan (RAMED) is becoming a victim of its own success. While at the time of its launch the plan covered 8.5 million beneficiaries, it now must assist 11.5 million people in need. With a lack of resources and problems of governance, this ambitious goal is farfetched, says the Minister of Health, Houcine El Ouardi.
