Abstract

"Health systems" (also called "health care systems" and "healthcare systems") are organizations that provide health care services to target populations by integrating people, institutions, and resources. A health care system is nothing more than a collection of interdependent pieces and their relationships. People, organizations, and behaviors whose primary goal is to promote, restore, or maintain health are part of a "health system." This system relies on the interdependence of its various components. Numerous components that make up a health care system, like patients, families, communities, health departments, health care professionals, and organizations responsible for funding health care are just a few examples. The duties and functions of each component are intertwined. WHO proposes supporting and building a health care system based on the following framework, the Six Health System Building Blocks? It is possible to produce more equitable and long-lasting gains in health services and outcomes by enhancing the six components of the health system and 1 managing their interrelationships .
