Deputy Head of MMA Colonel Prof. d r Dragan Dincic in his welcome address spoke about the specifics of the medical profession and stressed that health is as important as science, culture, education, but it is at the same time is a special category, because it cannot be postponed.
- Everything can be slowed down or even stopped for a moment, except for disease, which often comes suddenly and almost always unannounced - said Prof. Dr. Dincic and then spoke about patients, medical personnel sacrifice, their enthusiasm, but also about problems of supply of medicines and medical movable assets.

Medical workers are optimists by choice, otherwise they would not be able to do this hard work, and I am an optimist too because I believe in the real value of the MMA, I believe in the MMA being a national asset, which by its strategic significance goes far beyond the boundaries and personal preferences of any individual - Deputy Head of MMA said.
