Expert Network on Health Care Reform Strategies in Southern Europe (SOUTHNET) : report on a WHO meeting, Jerusalem, Israel 8-11 November 1999
ResumoThe objectives for the third meeting of the Expert Network on Health Care Reform Strategies in Southern Europe (SOUTHNET), convened by the WHO Regional Office for Europe, were to discuss problems related to a shift in the balance of resource allocation towards primary health care (PHC), to share information about health reform strategies adopted in the participants' countries and to learn about the progress of reform in the host country, Israel. Participants from 12 countries attended. In the discussion, participants identified obstacles to shifting the balance of resource allocation in favour of PHC: weak links between hospital and PHC staff, lack of trained staff in PHC, pressure from the equipment and pharmaceuticals industries, and the lack of standards for quality assurance, guidelines for accreditation and evidence-based treatment, and public information and education. The participants made five recommendations focusing on eliminating these obstacles. Country presentations and an in-depth analysis of the reform process in Israel gave the participants valuable insights on current developments in health servies in SOUTHNET countries
