NIS continues its support to healthcare institutions dealing with reproductive health in our country, within which modern medical equipment worth four million dinars was procured for the needs of the Health Center “Dr. Đorđe Bastić” in Srbobran.
This project was implemented through the socially responsible programme “Together for the Community”, which the company implemented last year under the slogan “Let New Hopes Be Born” with the aim of contributing to the national priority of improving reproductive health and increasing the birth rate. The Health Center “Dr. Đorđe Bastić” received a modern ultrasound machine that will contribute to the improved quality and accuracy of diagnostics for pregnant women and other patients, significantly reduce waiting lists and increase the number of examinations by almost 50 percent.
“On behalf of the municipality of Srbobran and all its citizens, I would like to thank NIS for its continuous support. Our cooperation so far has been at a very high level, and I hope that we will continue in the same direction in the future and implement many more projects that will certainly contribute to a better quality of life for all citizens in our local community,” said Radivoj Debeljački, the President of the municipality of Srbobran.
Igor Korać, the Head of the Department for Geodetic Works at NIS, pointed out that this is the 55th project supported by the company in Srbobran through the “Together for the Community” programme. “I believe that our good cooperation will continue in the future, and we will be there to be a good partner to the municipality of Srbobran,” Korać stated, while Dr. Vlastimir Kladara, the Director of the Health Center “Dr. Đorđe Bastać”, thanked NIS and emphasised that timely and quality healthcare is of the utmost importance for patients.
Considering the increasing number of couples facing fertility issues, in an attempt to bring to life as many new hopes as possible, NIS provided financial support of one million dinars to the municipality of Srbobran to conduct a public call to support couples in the process of in vitro fertilisation. The competition for couples is still open, and they can find more information and application instructions on the website of the municipality of Srbobran or the following link: Public call for the allocation of funds for reimbursement of costs for preparation and treatment in the in vitro fertilisation process in 2023 in the municipality of Srbobran – Municipality of Srbobran.

It is implemented in 13 partner cities and municipalities throughout Serbia, where NIS conducts the majority of its business activities.
