Ana Rukavina Public Cord Blood Bank

The establishment of the public bank is the result of great effort and investment made by the Ana Rukavina Foundation.

By providing funding, the Foundation provides a continuing opportunity for young physicians to educate abroad, thereby opening unprecedented opportunities for physicians to advance professionally.
