“A health system consists of all organisations, people and actions whose primary intent is to promote, restore or maintain health. This includes efforts to influence determinants of health as well as more direct health-improving activities. A health system is therefore more than the pyramid of publicly owned facilities that deliver personal health services.”

Health Care Systems differ from nation to nation depending upon the level of economic development and the political system in place. Health care is a priority and source of concern worldwide. Every country irrespective of its private, public or mixed health care system faces challenges with regard to quality, delivery and cost of services.
