Supporting health reform in Eastern Europe (Inglês)

As they undertook the difficult transition to a market economy, the countries of Eastern Europe found that they needed to radically reform their health sectors. The scope, pace, and outcome of the reforms eventually undertaken varied. But they shared many characteristics. Most sought to decentralize care, increase private sector involvement in service delivery, rationalize or downsize hospital services, and strengthen the role of family practice physicians. Many introduced forms of national health insurance. Some took steps to strengthen public health programs and regulations (such as controls on public smoking and tobacco advertisement). Others sought to improve reproductive health services for women.
