Download (6.59 MB)

This strategy establishes four simultaneous, interdependent strategic lines:

  • (a) expanding equitable access to comprehensive, quality, people- and community-centered health services;
  • (b) strengthening stewardship and governance;
  • (c) increasing and improving financing with equity and efficiency, and advancing toward the elimination of direct payments that constitute a barrier to access at the point of service; and
  • (d) strengthening multisectoral coordination to address the social determinants of health that ensure the sustainability of universal coverage.
