Summary

The lack of accessible, affordable and adequate healthcare services has led to poor health outcomes in many Asian markets. Social Enterprises (SEs) are tackling these problems by matching health service demand with new and innovative ways of organizing delivery and financing care. A health system consists of three basic functions that collectively form a healthcare value chain: organizing delivery, financing access, and changing behaviors. Public and private health services overlap and complement each other in all the functional areas of a health system.
