The financial and economic crisis is redefining the role of government in public services and health systems, as reflected in the determining factors of quality, accessibility and universality. How can the state best ensure an effective and sustainable health care system? How can the principle of universal care and accessibility be understood within the current economic context? What role can insurance groups play as partners in the financing of health care systems?
