[Correspondence] Iran’s health-care system in transition

Iran’s health system has undergone several reforms in the past three decades with many challenges and successes. The most important reform was the establishment of the National Health Network in 1983, which aimed to reduce inequities and expand coverage and access to health care in deprived areas.1 The Iranian Government has since implemented several other reforms, such as the Family Physician Programme, integration of health services and medical education, the hospital autonomy policy, and the Health Sector Evolution Plan, all of which have had benefits and disadvantages.
