There are not many records on the history of healthcare and practicing medicine in the Čazma area. It can be assumed that medicine was practiced in the present Čazma after the founding of the Chapter – church body of twelve canons. The Čazma then had the status of the auxiliary centre of the Zagreb Diocese and the religious, enlightenment and cultural centre of the Čazma Archdeaconry. Historical records witness to the connection between the Chapters in Čazma and Zagreb; the frequent stay of the prelates of that time in this area; as well as the attacks and destruction by the Turks followed by the fall of Čazma. A further confirmation of active healthcare activity in this area can be found in the records on the existence of a leprosarium in Čazma during the plague epidemic in the Middle Ages. Today Čazma has a primary healthcare service within the Public Health Centre of the Bjelovar-Bilogora County, an emergency medical assistance service within the County Public Health Institute, and an epidemiological service within the Public Health Institute. Pharmaceutical business and veterinary medical services actively operate as well. All of these services have undergone reforms over the recent years. Healthcare organization in ex-Yugoslavia differed from its present organization as of the middle of the previous century. Formerly, pharmaceutical and medical services formed a part of the Public Health Centre in Čazma. Some of these services have subsequently become independent from the said Health Centre, and several other services have merged into the Public Health Centre of the Bjelovar-Bilogora County. Hence, several subject services presently operate autonomously.
