SEA/RC50/6 - Health sector reform
AbstractHealth sector reform deals with fundamental change processes in policies and institutional arrangements, usually guided by the government. A radical change is impossible without realistic and robust political leadership and sound scientific evidence. Experience of many countries suggests that the success of reforms lies in how the process is applied and by whom, rather than how the contents are formulated. Sustained information and education on health sector reform are needed to generate wider political and public understanding and support. Continuous monitoring and review of health systems development are required. Research support is required to provide valid scientific evidence for strengthening the processes and mechanisms of health sector reform.
