Most countries are agonising over core dilemmas of affordability and performance of their health systems.
A successful health system has three attributes:
- healthy people, meaning a population that attains the highest level of health possible;
- superior care, meaning care that is effective, safe, timely, patient centred, equitable, and efficient;
- fairness, meaning that treatment is applied without discrimination or disparities to all individuals and families, regardless of age, group identity or place, and that the system is fair to the health professionals, institutions and businesses supporting and delivering care.
