Summary/Abstract: The period at the end of World War II is characterized by various political, economic and social changes which had a multifaceted effect on health conditions as well. The aim of this study is to identify the basic changes in the field of medical services immediately after the end of the Second World War. Divided into sections, the work is concerned with the organization of medical services, paying particular attention to the status of communicable diseases, analysis of changes in the pharmaceutical services, and the acquisition of medicine as well as showing data on the activities and work of important instititions, especially the Medical Faculty and schools for middle and lower medical personnel. Besides consulting the available literature which deals with this issue, research was mostly carried out on the basis of articles published in the newspapers Vjesnik and Narodni list, as well as the generally reliable documents of the People’s Ministry of Health for the People’s Republic of Croatia from 1945 which are held at the Croatian State Archive in Zagreb.
