Emmanuel Macron devotes, this Tuesday, May 31, 2022, the first field trip of his second term to access to emergency care.

The French president must meet in Cherbourg (north-west) many health actors.

Thursday, June 2, he is expected in Marseille to take stock of the “school of the future” experiment.

Health and education, two priorities announced by the Head of State.

Two sectors that are symbols of public service and which suffer from a lack of means and attractiveness.

Once considered among the finest professions in the world, how can this descent into hell be explained?

What consequences?

And how to revive vocations?
