Abstract

The paper deals with specificities of health care on Croatian
islands. Historical examples of the high level of island health care
and health culture date back to the beginning of this millenium and
recent examples of selforganization of health care are given.
Today's health care standard on islands appears above Croatian
average while studies that compared islands and the continent
confirmed a common belief that island ambience, climate and life
styles are good for health. Possible directions of further development
of island health care with an emphasis on island tourism and
corresponding health care problems are given in the end.
