Milan Krek selected for new Public Health Institute director

The overhauled council of the Public Health Institute (NIJZ) selected Milan Krek, the head of the NIJZ’s Koper unit, as the institute’s new director.

 

Krek’s appointment still requires a nod from the government, which however seems certain given that Krek has been appearing at its coronavirus briefings in recent weeks following the government’s clash with the institute’s current leadership. Krek, a doctor who became the head of the Koper NIJZ unit in 2006 after he had ran the government office for narcotics, is to replace acting director Ivan Eržen, who was appointed by the new government as Nina Pirnat was moved to the Health Ministry’s Healthcare Directorate on 20 March.
