The foundation of the Lancet Commission relies on gathering insights into the expectations and experiences of healthcare from healthcare providers, including frontline workers and citizens of diverse social groups in our country across gender and age.
Address challenges related to the sources and utilization of health expenditures, in order to maximise financial risk protection and to ensure an effective, equitable, reliable, and responsive health system for all.
Propose a governance framework characterised by a robust regulation architecture, coordination across levels of government, and increased accountability with the goal of high quality healthcare for all citizens.
Enable effective human resources planning and policy to address shortages and inequitable distribution, enhance skill development, improve motivation and working conditions, and expand access to a plurality of health care services.
