Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, June 17, 2020 – Health Minister Vili Beros on Wednesday said that the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) election platform contained a solution that would enable the health system to become financially sustainable, noting that currently, it was neither sustainable nor good, particularly for patients.

“At the start of my term in office, I said that the health system was not in the best financial situation and that we have to define solutions that will enable it to be financially sustainable. The HDZ’s election platform provides solutions that will regulate more adequately the health system’s financial operations because now it is neither sustainable nor good, particularly for patients,” Beros told reporters.

HDZ’s platform oriented towards prevention, accessibility of primary health care 

“Our platform is oriented towards preventative activities. Part of those activities is the need for self-sufficiency in the production of vaccines and blood plasma derivatives,” underscored Beros.

He announced digital solutions that will improve accessibility to health protection.

“We have to work on improving access to primary health care… it is necessary to introduce an emergency helicopter medical service,” he said and added that water ambulances for the islands and coastal communities would soon be introduced. 

“We want to correct policies regarding the needs of the health system in the future so that we do not have a shortage of medical staff in certain areas of the country,” he added.

Firefighters will receive instructions related to coronavirus during firefighting season

Commenting on the coronavirus pandemic, Beros said that the virus and the related measures would also have an impact on the fire season.

“The Croatian Institute for Public Health will issue firefighters with detailed instructions about what they should be wary of” during the firefighting season, Beros said.
