Medicinal Product Utilisation in Croatia from 2017 to 2021

Statistical overview of utilisation of medicinal products in the Republic of Croatia in the period from 2017 to 2021.

This overview is based on the data on the distribution of medicinal products in all public pharmacies, hospital pharmacies as well as specialised retail stores for medicinal products in Croatia, in accordance with the Medicinal Products Act (Official Gazette No. 76/13, 90/14 and 100/18) and the Ordinance on the Type of Data and Manner of Drafting the Report on Medicinal Product Consumption (Official Gazette No. 122/14).

Once a year HALMED publishes a brochure which keeps track of and compares the medicinal product utilisation within the last five years. HALMED began with this practice in 2014 with the first publication in Croatia containing a comparative report on medicinal product utilisation over a multiannual period.

These publications can serve as basis for planning of utilisation of medicinal products and rational pharmacotherapy at all healthcare levels.
