RESOURCES MINISTER MARKS SEMMELWEIS DAY

 

Human Resources Minister Miklós Kásler highlighted the life and achievements of Ignaz Semmelweis, a 19th century Hungarian doctor commonly referred to as “the saviour of mothers” at a ceremony marking Semmelweis Day, a holiday for Hungary’s health care sector. Semmelweis was “the Martin Luther of medicine” and “the most ethical physician” of all times, who “developed the first great generation of Hungarian health care”, Kásler said. On the occasion, the minister handed over the Semmelweis, Batthyány-Strattmann and Pro-Sanitate awards to doctors and nurses.
