The World Bank is set to allocate 120 million euros to Turkey to strengthen its healthcare system.
According to a written statement released by the World Bank, the fund is planned to be spent on the prevention of non-infectious disease, augmentation of the public hospitals' productivity and enhancing the Health Ministry's capacity to produce evidence-based politics. The final maturity of the credit will expire 10 years and six months later but it will be five-years non-refundable.
Commenting on the fund, World Bank Deputy Turkey Director Illangovan Patchamuthu said non-infectious disease continues to be a big problem for Turkey, even though the country is one of the best countries that practices healthcare services that involve the public. "The solution to this problem requires a multi-perspective approach including the encouragement of a healthy lifestyle and altering negative habits considering the risk factors," Patchamuthu said. The World Bank has helped Turkey with various funds since the country initiated the Health Transformation Program in 2003.
As the analysis by the bank shows, Turkey's healthcare transformation poses as a source of inspiration and example for other countries.
