  • Health System

    Poland has a mixed system for public and private health care financing. Social health insurance contributions represent the major public source of health care financing.

    Primary health care and family medicine have strengthened since 1991 with an increased focus on training health professionals in family medicine. There is a strict separation between outpatient specialized care and inpatient care.
