Milan Kujundžić (pronounced [mǐlan kujǔndʒitɕ]; born 27 April 1957) is a Croatian politician serving as Minister of Health of Croatia since 19 October 2016 in the Cabinet of Andrej Plenković. A longtime member of Croatian Democratic Union, he resigned from the party following his defeat in party chairmanship election in May 2012, which was won by Tomislav Karamarko. Kujundžić then founded a right-wing political party Croatian Dawn, established in July 2013 but returned to HDZ in 2016.

Kujundžić was born in the village of Ivanbegovina near Imotski, Croatia. He graduated from the University of Zagreb School of Medicine in 1982 and obtained his Ph.D. in medicine in 1992.[1]

Since 2005 Kujundžić serves as a head-master of Clinical Hospital Dubrava. From 2004 until 2005, Kujundžić served as assistant of Minister of Health and Social Welfare.

In 2012, Kujundžić was a candidate for the president of the Croatian Democratic Union, and in the 20 May 2012 election he came in second after Tomislav Karamarko. In presidential elections in 2014, he was a candidate for the president, but was defeated with conquered 6.3 percent of vote.
