Health Policy Salient Issues 

The deliverables that the people expect of the health service and therefore the proposed reforms are: 

● Increased access to health services 

● Improved quality of services in a system that ensures quality 

● Value for money 

● Equity in the service 

Health Sector Reform proposals have been developed on three principal pillars; equity, efficiency and effectiveness. The reforms will provide three levels of service delivery — Health Centres, Polyclinics and Hospitals. 

● The health centres are the community focal points for health development and will be the main institutions for wellness promotion. 

● The polyclinics are institutional platforms for the delivery of more specialised care and will house the multidisciplinary team (health workers and social workers) to allow for the delivery of more sophisticated services to the communities. 

● The hospitals will operate as support for the polyclinics and will provide the secondary and tertiary care services that cannot be delivered by the polyclinics. 

The system is an integrated, mutually supportive network of institutions and workers focused on providing services for the communities in the most comprehensive and convenient way with minimum duplication. 

National programs targeted at the main health and social problems will be developed with programme managers being responsible for successful development and implementation. These programmes include: gender based violence reduction, care of the elderly, integrated child care and protection, chronic non-communicable diseases (diabetes, hypertension, cancer etc.), communicable diseases (expanded programme of Immunisation, sexually transmitted disease program, food borne, water borne and vector-borne diseases).

 

As a component of some of these, institutions will have to be built, bought or renovated; these include the shelter for women, the transit home for children and the senior citizens home.
