|Views: 44|Likes:
Mongolia's transition to a market-oriented economy in the 1990s adversely affected the Government's ability to finance and deliver health services and provide social security services to cushion the social impacts of the transition. Following the transition, the Government initiated steps to change the social welfare system from provision of universal access to more targeted assistance.

The Government's development strategies for health identified improved access to and quality of health care, particularly maternal and child health services and primary health care (PHC), as immediate targets. The Government considers improving the quality of the health care system, ensuring access to and quality of PHC, and reforming health care financing to be key instruments to reduce poverty, accelerate economic growth, and reduce disparities in the development process, particularly between rural and urban areas. ADB has been a major partner in the Government's efforts to reform the health sector since the early 1990s.

The Government's main goals for the social protection sector are to reduce unemployment and poverty, improve living standards (particularly for the poor), ensure social guarantees, and improve the quality of and access to care services.
