Testing Health Systems and Policies in the COVID-19 Pandemic Process: The Turkish Case


The COVID-19 pandemic has seriously strained, tested and continues to test all systems of countries in general, and health systems and policies in particular. The COVID-19 outbreak process and the Turkish case have also shown that societies investing collectively in their health have the ability to better manage the process and survive with fewer casualties.

Health systems need to have a flexible, durable and dynamic structure to effectively respond to and handle similar shocks caused by the epidemic. This flexibility should be to cover all components of a healthcare system, including management, funding, service delivery and human resources.

We believe that our book fills an important gap in discussions about the COVID-19 outbreak testing the resilience of health systems and societies, and hope that you enjoy it.
