Turkish Republic Health Minister Recep Akdağ said: Today 80 million citizens are under a protective public health insurance coverage and there is a misconception that health system executives all over the world spend too much and expenditures made in health sector mean expenditures made for the development of the countries. Underlining that financing providers should consider this as a development item, Akdağ said “This program we named as Health Transformation Programme has shown great success in 10 years. Satisfaction of our citizens in terms of health has risen from 39 percent to 75 percent. Significant decreases occurred in the maternal and infant mortality rates. This rate decreased to 14% from 70% for every one hundred thousand mothers/pregnant women.  We, as the ministry, will lower this figure even further down. On the other hand, the system in Turkey is a very excellent system in terms of financial protection. Today, 80 million of our citizens are under a protective public health insurance coverage. Our citizens access their health rights excellently both at the level of primary health care services and secondary health care services. The system we have built is both inexpensive and accessible to everyone.” Stating that they have touched and changed many points of the system in order to realize this transformation, Akdağ said “We first started to pay according to the performance of our employees. This significantly increased employee productivity. Of course, it needs to be more perfect. The second one is the works we have realized by public private partnership. Turkey has started the second phase of health transformation programme. This period will change upon converting efficient, productivity and east access to be enabled as a result of these into high quality service. Turkey is taking important steps on this way. While this second period in Turkey strengthens access, it will also provide service with much higher quality. As health is one of the most important areas, in which we can collaborate, our collaborations and contacts  with our friendly nations will continue. ”
