Sažetak
The aim of this article is to present public health needs emerging in rural areas of Croatia that are under the special state protection. The examined region is about 90 km south-east of Zagreb in Sisačko-moslavačka county. Three elements concerning public health are investigated: drinking water supply, waste disposal and health services. Both, water supply systems and waste disposal sites, were examined in situ, sanitary water analysis were performed, whereas local population was interviewed about health care needs. The results revealed serious problems in all three areas. Part of the population never had running water in their homes. Local water supply systems are run down and remained population can not maintain them properly. Water springs themselves are good, but technical capacities of supply systems are very low, so water is microbiologically contaminated. Further, where water supply systems existed, water wells were poorly maintained, so water is also microbiologically contaminated. So far, waste was burned or disposed on wild dumpsites. Today the problem deepened due to the large number of abandoned houses that are decomposing and at the same time becoming nucleuses where other waste is disposed. The whole area is sparsely inhabited without a critical mass that could lobby against transport of the waste from other counties. There was more than one suggestion that hazardous waste could be disposed in these areas, without any evaluation of relevant parameters. There is a trend of increased demand for health care services due to the elderly population as well as large number of single households. Population cannot reach health care centers because there is no public transportation, and existing model of patronage is not able to cover the area due to poor roads, distances between villages and households, so population remains without preventive work as well. It is evident that new concept of health care organization is needed to meet the needs of the communities in such rural regions. It should mobilize all local resources and integrate all the elements of the population and the environment.
