Recommendation of the report

In this regard, we support the report’s recommendation, he added, to shift the health system towards universal health coverage as a flexible base towards primary health care. This includes protection against health emergencies, By increasing access to high-quality medicines, strengthening diagnostic capacity, prevention and control of non-communicable diseases and mental health, as well as strengthening rehabilitation services in the health system, we believe that this will be essential.
