Serbia has a comprehensive universal health system with free access to health care, but there are inequities in the utilisation of health services. Some vulnerable groups, such as those living in poverty or Roma people in settlements, have more barriers in accessing health care. Financial constraints are the main reason for unmet needs, in particular for the less educated and the poorest. Although citizens are generally satisfied with public and private health care services, a significant number of patients are on waiting lists. Therefore, reaching equal access to health services should be one of the leading health policy goals.
