Harbor at Patras, northwest Peloponnesus
The health care system of Greece has reformed and grown significantly since 1980, but resources and personnel have been distributed unevenly among geographical regions and within the medical profession. In the early 1990s, indicators for life expectancy and incidence of major diseases were as good as or better than the average for nations of Western Europe.
