|Health Sector Analysis in Cuba|
In light of the current country situation, the Health Sector Analysis document is used to sustain the reorientation of the sector and as a basis for international cooperation in health. As part of the preparation for the Health Sector Analysis, a group of experts were trained, divided into subgroups and given specific subjects to develop. The participants represent a set of various institutions and scientific disciplines, which provides for the necessary interdisciplinary and inter-institutional character of the analysis.
The Health Sector Analysis document is structured in chapters that successively present the theoretical framework of the current reform process. A discussion of the theoretical framework is followed by a description of the political, economic and social environment; demographic and epidemiological situation analysis; approaches to promotion and prevention, sanitary regulations; institutional framework; human and technological resources; financing and expenditures of the sector; health services; scientific and technical development; traditional and natural medicine and international cooperation.
