The Republic of Croatia is located in Central Europe and is bordered by Slovenia, Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro. In 2012, the population stands at an estimated 4.4 million.
Funding for healthcare in Croatia is principally through the compulsory health insurance system. It was introduced in 1993 and is operated by the Croatian Institute for Health Insurance (CIHI). The CIHI collects contributions from the working population and the government makes payments on behalf of those exempt, such as the elderly, the unemployed and dependants. The system has significantly reduced the number of unofficial payments made in the healthcare sector.
In 2012, the Croatian market for medical equipment and supplies is estimated at US$218.3 million, or US$49 per capita. It is expected that the market will expand at a rate of 3.3% per annum, reaching US$257.3 million, or US$58 per capita by 2017. The government has aimed to bring the performance of the healthcare system into line with that of other EU member states through the National Health Strategy 2006-2011.
Around 92% of the medical device market is supplied by imports. Croatia has a small domestic production sector, supplying both the domestic market and other countries from the former Yugoslavia.
Croatia has been able to resume talks with the EU regarding its accession prospects, following progress in areas such as government corruption and tackling unresolved war crimes issues from the early 1990s. In December 2011, Croatia signed its accession treaty to the EU, which if approved by all 27 member states, will allow the country to join the EU in July 2013.
