Daniel Gollán is the former Health Minister of Argentina.
Daniel Gollán made his university studies during the Dirty War, and joined the "Juventud Universitaria Peronista". He met the future president Néstor Kirchner by then. He studied under the guidance of the cardiologist Floreal Ferrara. He led the ANMAT from 2008 to 2010, and advises the Carta Abierta group on topics related to health.
He was appointed minister of health in Argentina, on February 26, 2015. Replacing Juan Luis Manzur. Kirchnerism could not achieve a victory for Daniel Scioli in the 2015 presidential election that allowed him to prevent a ballotage, and runs for a runoff election against Mauricio Macri. Kirchnerism reacted with a negative campaigning against Macri. Gollán said, in his Twitter account, "The 12 new radiation therapy centers to treat cancer will continue if Scioli is president. Think well before you vote". The opposition asked for his resignation, and Gollán deleted the post and claimed that his account had been hacked. Still, his previous posts had a similar tone. Anyhow, the statements in this negative campaigning showed to be true, as after Scioli lost the election and Mauricio Macri become the President of Argentina, many hospitals were closed, Argentina's public health system was seriously deteriorated  and even the Minstry of Health ceased to exist and was substituted by a Secretariat, with lower budget and less decision powers.
