Summary
This comprehensive review of Turkey's health care system shows that health status has improved rapidly in Turkey in recent decades, partly as a result of higher health spending. It describes the introduction of an ambitious Health Transformation Program in 2003 which brought universal health insurance to Turkey in 2008 and has begun the process of public hospital reforms and the rolling out of family-practitioner services throughout the country. Challenges remain, however, including completing the Health Transformation Program and ensuring that the new health system provides value for money and stays affordable. This report analyzes these challenges and sets out policy suggestions aimed at addressing them.--Publisher's description.
