Paper Title: Restructuring of provincial health systems, search for future healthcare model in Pakistan
Abstract:
 
Establishing a comprehensive healthcare system is challenging in low and middle income countries due to institutional and economic constraints. Historically health systems put emphasis on secondary care in these countries, where relatively large hospitals provide medical care through outpatient and inpatient medical services. On the other hand the primary care services are either minimal in existence or there uptake is extremely poor. This is particularly true for government healthcare services. This paper argues that the comprehensive care can only be achieved by integrating primary care and secondary care. This research will take specific examples from decentralized provincial health services initiatives in Punjab province, and explore the innovative healthcare model for future of the health provisions in the context of constraints in the current system.
