Note of the initiator

Through my personal and professional experiences comes the conviction that natural scenery and the best specialists work together to transform „living in sickness“ to „a life with the disease“!

Almost 30 years ago, I was treating local patients as well as tourists at my private medical practice in Croatia. During the last 15 years, I have gathered international, intercontinental, and intercultural experiences in Austria.

The stigmatization of patients in tourism, as well as the failure of interdisciplinary communication, were „trigger“ for the campaign “Health Benefit”. Seriously ill people can lead a proactive life, whether they living at home or on the holidays. That is why I have, with idealism and joy, placed my competencies on the market again!
