Promotion Of Research On Health Sector Reforms (3 April 1996)
PDF File Size: 693 KB | Download   
The term "Health Sector Reform" has been frequently used in health development literature, including health policy research, and also in the main context of dialogues with donor agencies. Recent experience in both developed and developing countries has shown that health sector reform is a highly political and fiercely contested process. Especially, in least developed countries, the reforms are more complex due to a wide range of contracting partners, including donor agencies.
In recent years, economic pressures on the government and specially on the health sector have forced the governments of developing countries to initiate health sector reforms. This thrust is made to ensure that an appropriate share of public fund is spent on health care, especially at local levels (allocative efficiency). The users should also be satisfied with the form and content of health service offered (improved health stauts and client satisfaction), and that the benefits of publicly- funded health care are equitably distributed (imported equity of access to care). These health sectors reforms varied in social, economic and political environments, as well as in development stages of health care systems.
