During my visit to the Rockefeller Archive Center, I reviewed the materials that were available for my dissertation on "The Basis of Health Education in Croatia," which describes health promotion and education efforts in Croatia between the two world wars. During the period between 1919 and 1940, numerous medical and health establishments were built in the rural areas and countryside of Croatia. Other significant programs were designed to educate the Croatian people about the importance of hygiene and practicing a healthy lifestyle. The Rockefeller Foundation directly influenced these programs and provided strong financial support to them.
