The State Policy on Health mainstreaming universal health care is endorsed by the Government

The Mongolian Government has endorsed today the State Policy on Health 2017-2026, a visionary policy document setting the framework for the development of Mongolia’s health sector for the next ten years. The policy document was developed by the core team of public health professionals from the Ministry of Health and its agencies and in consultation with the MPs and the members of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Social Policy, Education, Culture and Sciences, and other sectoral Ministries as well as civil society and international organisations. WHO was closely involved in the drafting of the policy document that mainstreams the universal health coverage. The goal to advance the UHC, to implement “leaving no one behind” approach was reflected in the SPH. The SPH will now guide all the follow-up policies and decisions related to health.
