Zagreb, Croatia 2020.
With the dissolution of the convocation of the Croatian Parliament, my role as an external member of the Committee on Health and Social Policy of the Croatian Parliament ceased. I was elected as an external member of the Committee on the proposal of my Croatian Diplomatic Club and support from the members of parliament from the north of Croatia.
The meetings of the Committee were filled with interesting discussions, especially thematic ones, which were very often related to current topics and issues in Croatian healthcare sistem: related to drug use, tobacco use, mandatory vaccination program, obesity awareness, public health and food safety, child psychiatry, the issue of nurses, the availability of therapy and treatment of rare diseases, autism, the fight against cancer and the creation of an oncology registry, international humanitarian law, the organization of emergency helicopter service in Croatia, and many others.
This is the end of an extremely interesting four-year mandate of socializing with fellow doctors, nurses and representatives of the health and social profession in the Republic of Croatia.
Most of us, after a certain period of life, especially in a career, almost always have the impression that more could have been done. But the experience of working in a parliamentary environment, above all the opportunity to freely express my ideas, participate in debates, make decisions and make legislative proposals, leaves an immense wealth for the further course of my career.
