After the end of the First World War awarenees about alcohol as a cause of a disease called alcoholism started to spread accross Croatia. The World was introduced with a new disease, which in the second half of the 19th century gradually began to be recognized as a member of a group of social diseases such as tuberculosis, malaria and others. Various methods have been used to fight alcoholism, but all of them have failed which prompted abstainers to turn to the new health policy, social medicine. Supporters of social medicine have found existential conditions and ignorance of general population to be main causes of the disease. In Croatia, the lead promoter of social medicine and founder of department at University was dr. Andrija Štampar. The key proposition of his reform of public health in Kingdom of Jugoslavia was better education quality of general population. In order to achieve that goal he started a project of establishing the School of Public Health which had a task of accomplishing his ideas in practice. The School launched propaganda campaigns with the objective to introduce new hygiene habits and to reduce mortality rate in the Kingdom.
