Field: Nephrology

Personal Statement

It is my goal to campaign and fight for equal health care service and practice in nephrology throughout Europe in order to further decrease the incidence of renal failure. This requires specific tasks and promotion of education of ordinary people in the society and their leaders, patients and general practitioners in Central and Eastern Europe. I will fight for more support of PhD education with emphasis on clinical and basic research, prevention, rehabilitation and holistic approach in patient care which all will contribute to the harmonization of health care. I would stress extension of cooperation within the region and develop sub-regional activities considering cultural, historical and traditional backgrounds. I would address the health issues of Gypsies, the largest European disadvantaged minority. They have been shown to have a shorter life expectancy and need earlier renal replacement therapy with poor outcome. I will fight for better kidney health for everyone and everywhere!
