“My colleagues whose souls are shaped by human values ​​and whose hearts are full of compassion have condemned humanity to a new life order in the past year. Every person in every corner of the world has been affected by the pandemic. While calling our people home, you could not enter your homes.

This was our mission. Some of us were in the emergency room, some in the intensive care unit. While one of us welcomed the patients in the outpatient clinic, another of us struggled to make a diagnosis in the laboratory. We were the ones conducting contact screening in the field and delivering the medicine to our patient at home. We were the ones who brought the emergency patient to the hospital by ambulance, we were the morning next to the suffering patient You, we, healthcare professionals, have been at the helm of our duty. We did not parted, did not give up, we struggled. In the face of the biggest health problem of the last century, we have done what is required of our profession’s reputation and honor. As I stated on the anniversary of the pandemic, you saved lives. You put your life at risk. This community will never forget the photos that show you in sweaty aprons. Thanks to you, we know once again that professions that serve human health are professions in which goodness and other human qualities are seen the most. We are grateful to you. Your burden and fatigue have partially decreased, but you are still our assurance today. Thanks to your superior efforts, we will hopefully leave those nightmare days behind as soon as possible. Even though we wear out a lot emotionally, we are close to the beautiful days that will make us hold on to our hope more tightly.

Our nation does not leave its blessings and gratitude for you. Let the good feelings our Kadirşinas people feel for the healthcare professionals they have entrusted their lives to herald the days of health and peace that we deserve. As the Minister of Health and your colleague, I congratulate you on 14 March Medicine Day. I thank you for your superior effort and sacrifice. I offer my sincere love to all of you, with the hope of continuing our efforts that we devote to our people and life under fairer and more qualified conditions. ”
