Turkey - Organization for economic co-operation and development (OECD) : reviews of health systems : Turkiye - Ekonomik isbirligi ve kalkinma orgutu (OECD) : saglik sistemi incelemeleri (Turco)

The health status of the Turkish population has improved significantly over the past few decades, accompanying improvements in the scale and functioning of the health-care system. Impressive progress has been made in expanding financial protection to the population through expansions in the breadth and depth of health insurance coverage combined with service delivery reforms to improve equity in access to health services. Health expenditures have also increased in the past decades commensurate with income increases. Social security institutions covered salaried workers in the formal sector, as well as the self-employed and active and retired civil servants. A government-financed programme covered the low-income uninsured. The Health transformation programme (HTP) reflects good practice in the development and implementation of a major health sector reform including universal health insurance (UHI) coverage in an organization for economic co-operation and development (OECD) country. Strong government commitment and leadership along with major financing reforms aided by strong economic growth have been complemented by sequential delivery system reforms. Turkey is closing the performance gap with other OECD countries and, on a number of measures including overall costs, performs well in relation to other comparable upper middle-income countries. There may be much that other countries can learn from the recent health reforms in Turkey.
