More than 76,000 signatures have now been collected in an effort to petition Icelandic lawmakers to allocate 11 percent of the country’s annual GDP toward healthcare, instead of the current 8.7 percent.
The petition was initiated by Dr. Kári Stefánsson, CEO of deCode Genetics. You need to be 18 or older to sign.
In the country’s history, no other petition directed toward Icelandic authorities has received as many signatures as this one, according to RÚV.
