In the summer and fall of 1996, the Republic of Macedonia began a comprehensive effort to reform its national health care system. This effort, financed by a loan from The World Bank, has brought together policymakers in the Ministry of Health and its Health Insurance Fund, Macedonian health professionals and a technical assistance team from RAND. Over the past 10 months, the RAND team has analyzed major aspects of the national health care and management system to help inform and guide discussions among Macedonian leaders and policymakers. In the course of their work, team researchers and consultants have prepared a series of reports, which are collected here as a reference for interested parties.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation Draft series. The unrestricted draft was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1993 to 2003 that represented preliminary or prepublication versions of other more formal RAND products for distribution to appropriate external audiences. The draft could be considered similar to an academic discussion paper. Although unrestricted drafts had been approved for circulation, they were not usually formally edited or peer reviewed.
