Health policy

Policy  should  mainly  focus  on  the  vision  for  the  future  while  learning  from  the  past experiences, outlining priorities, setting clear directions and the main objectives within the given societal and economic context, and on the role of reaching consensus, and informing people.
Based  on  the  general  policy  framework,  the  health  plans,  programmes  and strategies can be further developed, designing the way in which policy objectives will be achieved, establishing short- and medium-term deadlines and setting clear responsibilities for each actor involved.
A wide range of policies can contribute to the improvement of population  health  and  healthier  life,  ranging  from  employment  and  social  protection strategies to risk factors control, health promotion and protection, and changes in the life style of the population (2,5).
