After the donation to the Croatian Institute of Public Health we announced a few days ago, this initiative is once more a tangible proof of Generali’s concrete and direct engagement to tackle this extraordinary situation at global level."
President of the Croatian Medical Chamber dr.sc. Kresimir Luetić praised this initiative: “I thank Generali osiguranje for recognizing that doctors and nurses, who are fighting the epidemic on the front lines every day, are exposed to the highest risk of being infected by the new coronavirus.”
