The paper assumes that the public healthcare system represents one of the public services which crucially contributed to Romania's economic development and social modernization after the Great Union of 1918. The healthcare system evolution is analyzed in three chapters related to the periods: 1919-1947, 1948-1989 and 1990-2015, following the transformations generated by the dramatic changes of the economic and social-political system which occurred in 1947 and 1989. In each chapter, the author reviews the changes of the institutional framework, the dynamics of the budgetary resources allocated for healthcare, the extension of the healthcare network, the dynamics and structural change of the medical-sanitary staff and the evolution of morbidity and life expectancy at birth. This way, it is possible to reveal both the positive and negative aspects of the healthcare system functioning during each phase of the analysed period and also the features of the reforms and other institutional changes adopted by public authorities in order to improve the health status of population.
