Yugoslavia: Health Care and Social Welfare
Country Study > Chapter 2 > The Society and Its Environment > Health Care and Social Welfare

HEALTH CARE AND SOCIAL WELFARE


Before World War II, medical care in Yugoslavia was generally very poor. The country had only one physician for every 750 urban residents; in rural areas, the ratio was almost twenty times worse. In 1990, despite overall strides in the nation's healthcare system, a wide disparity remained between urban and rural areas in the delivery of health care.
