A Very Special Honorary Member

Dr Boga Skrinjar – July 2021

Munich 1996

Two years ago, I wrote a short note about Boga Skrinjar Nerima after she celebrated her 99th Birthday. Today I write to inform members that Dr Boga Skrinjar Nerima passed away on the 5th December 2022, aged 101.

Dr Skrinjar Nerima is remembered as Chief of the Development of Health Statistical Services at the World Health Organization (WHO) Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. I met Dr Skrinjar for the first time in 1968, and was impressed, not only with her knowledge about the work of medical record librarians, as we were known at that time, but also her passion for the work we did, and how we could help WHO with their work in preparing meaningful and accurate statistics on mortality and morbidity world-wide.

In 1968, along with Elsie Royale Mansell from the UK, Dr Skrinjar urged members to form an international organization. This was the beginning of a strong liaison between WHO and IFHIMA, which is still with us today. Dr Skrinjar encouraged medical record professionals to work towards improving medical record services, particularly clinical coding and healthcare statistics, and using the medical record to its full capacity. She also asked that we give particular attention to health records outside hospitals, and stressed the importance of education for medical record personnel.

She strongly supported IFHIMA and particularly encouraged the Executive Board to work towards assisting members and non-members in developing countries. In 1984 she was the second person to be awarded Honorary Membership of IFHIMA, which she was pleased to accept. She continued to work with the Federation during our early development, and continued this support over many years. We last met when she was a special guest at the 1996 International Congress in Munich, Germany. Many of us were privileged to know her and work with her. I am particularly grateful for the knowledge I gained from her, and the help she gave me over so many years.
