Presentation title: Capitalizing on our Strengths:  An update from the American Croatian Professionals Association Medical Tourism Task Force

The ACAPMTTF consists of a diverse group of professionals dedicated to supporting Croatia’s emergence as a premier international destination for health and wellness. The Task Force has gathered and analysed data from the business, tourism, and medical sectors to create a preventive lifestyle medical programme. The pilot programme combines Croatia’s rich culture of preventive medicine and natural beauties with American innovations. The discussion will focus on rethinking how we invest in health and healthcare delivery systems by incorporating the social and behavioural determinants of health and measuring the impact of these interventions.
