The problem of organ transplants, as one of the burning issues in the health protection in Serbia, must be approached in a systematic fashion, with necessary changes to laws and other regulations, increasing the number of donors, while listening to the professional opinions and respecting the patients’ rights. These are some of the messages sent at the round table discussion, organized by the Republican Health Insurance Fund. The report of Suzana Mitic.
In 2012 only 261.42 euros per capita was allocated for medical treatment in Serbia, which is the lowest amount in Europe, and it is one of the facts presented at the debate entitled “How to solve one of the burning issues at the moment in Serbian health protection”. It was added that by the end of June this year, the Republican Health Insurance Fund demands 886 million euros on the base of unpaid contributions. Those assets could significantly help in solving some of the problems in the field of health protections, including the organ transplantations, said director of the Fund Momcilo Babic.
It is undisputable that Serbia has experts able to perform transplantation surgeries, there is good communication with foreign experts, and there is will to earmark the finances for the solving of this problem, pointed Minister of Health Slavica Djukic Dejanovic, while stressing that the lack of finances is the biggest obstacle. One of the goals of the health policy is enable the same treatment to all the patients in the same diagnostic category, and to make the right to medical treatment available to everyone, the Minister of Health underlined.
“The work on the organ transplants has now become our reality. We have started the liver transplantations in the Belgrade Urgency center. We have very good results with kidney transplants in three institutions, including the clinical center in Nis. Naturally, the heart transplants are more delicate and present special challenge, but with assistance and experience of others and engaging everybody who really desire to work, I believe we will have positive results in a few months,” Slavica Djukic Dejanovic emphasized.
As stated, the arrival of experts in child heart transplantations from Brussels and Vienna is expected in Belgrade, to examine and give their opinion of twelve most endangered children in Serbia. It was particularly pointed during the discussion to the problem of a small number of donors and the need to stimulate the increase in those number by way of systematic solutions. Head of the expert team for organ transplantations in Serbia, doctor Dusan Scepanovic has noted that the proposal of his team is to establish the “Serbia Transplant”, as a body that would gather a multi-disciplinary team of experts to deal with all aspects of this important and complex subject.
