The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović visited the University Clinical Centre of the Republic of Srpska in Banja Luka today.
The President of the Republic of Srpska stated that the University Clinical Centre is an example of good practice, engagement, commitment and good medical service, which is provided to the patients from all over the Republic.
The President Cvijanović emphasized that the decision of the competent institutions of Srpska to systematically develop the health sector proved to be justified, especially taking into account that there is a modern hospital in every region.
“Everything that was done aiming to reorganise the space and services of the UCC is especially important in order to cope with the challenges of the pandemic, without depriving our other patients of the necessary medical care”, said the President of the Republic.
According to the President of Srpska, the institutions of the Republic of Srpska are trying in every possible way to improve both the UCC and hospitals throughout the Republic of Srpska.
“I think we are successfully dealing with all these challenges, but we still have to take care, to understand that the pressure on the health sector is huge and that our personal responsibility is a key to improving the situation and reducing that pressure”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of the Republic of Srpska expressed her gratitude to the leadership of the UCC and all health workers, who, as she stated, are dedicated to taking care of the patients, taking care of public health and ensuring that everyone receives adequate care.
“All our health workers throughout the Republic of Srpska deserve every possible praise”, it was said by the President of the Republic.
The President of Srpska also thanked the UCC for being part of the traditional humanitarian campaign “To Brave Hearts With Love”, which this year aims to provide funds for the establishment of the first human milk bank in the Republic of Srpska, but also the first one in BiH.
“There are three such banks in Serbia, and one in Croatia. We headed towards that goal, knowing that it was a huge challenge. We want Banja Luka and the Republic of Srpska to be a place where we will be able to provide breast milk to all those babies who need it. That is the goal of the health sector, which wants to give premature babies a better chance to overcome the problems they are dealing with”, it was emphasized by the President of the Republic of Srpska.
The President of Srpska also thanked the Association of Parents of Prematurely Born Children “Mrvice”, who initiated the establishment of a human milk bank.
