3. A stylized view of health-sector transformation in ECA. If the overall agenda is to achieve health-sector reform that recognizes intersectoral influences on health and that allows continued, uninterrupted functioning of the health system, then a series of additional questions arise. These concern key features of the desired destination of reform, its starting point, the challenges to be addressed, and the process that is most likely to accomplish the transformation. In what directions should health systems be heading?

Hence it should be no surprise if their health sectors, once reformed, also share common characteristics. They might expect similarities, too, with reforming health systems in established market economies (EMEs) because only a limited number of designs for health systems appear to work in an effective and sustainable way as a coherent, integrated whole.

As part of democratic, market-oriented societies with limited resources, reformed health systems will be governed, managed and regulated in new ways.

Health ministries in ECA countries must gradually transform themselves from institutions that deliver and finance health care to ones that set the policy agenda; define and revise the sector's legal, institutional, regulatory, and policy framework; ensure that public goods in the health arena are provided efficiently and effectively; achieve a good health financing system; and, in these and other ways, promote improved health outcomes. For the World Bank Group, addressing the challenge of reforming health sectors in Europe and Central Asia will test its mettle.
