[Editorial] Iran: promises and prospects for health

Feb 26 marked a landmark election for Iranian Parliament and the top clerical body, the Assembly of Experts, coming only weeks after the historic lifting of sanctions. Health will continue to be important under President Rouhani’s Government who launched the national health transformation plan in May, 2014, in an effort to address the 52% out-of-pocket payments for health care. Last week, The Lancet was welcomed to Kish Island, Iran, to review progress in health research and to attend a collaborative research meeting led by University College London and Tehran University of Medical Sciences.
