French Government Releases New National Strategy for Health

Country Correspondent: Paul Dourgnon

The French Ministry of Solidarity and Health released a new National Health Strategy for the next four years (2018–2022). The strategy outlines four priority areas: promoting health and prevention across all life stages; tackling social inequalities in health and access to care; ensuring the quality, safety, and relevance of care; and identifying innovative approaches to transform the health care system. These areas are further divided into 43 specific goals, and progress will be monitored on an annual basis. The strategy was developed by the government in collaboration with health care experts and public consultation. France has released a national health strategy since 2013. Since then, it has evolved from a roadmap focusing on prevention, primary care, and patient-centered care to the more detailed format it takes on today, with overarching goals and specific objectives.
