Rationalizing Mongolia’s Hospital Services: Experiences, Lessons Learned, and Future Directions
Before the 1990s, Mongolia had a health care system that largely depended on hospital-based services characterized by the extensive use of an excessive number of acute beds, a large number of medically unjustified admissions, and lengthy hospital stays. In the early 1990s, the Government of Mongolia started socioeconomic reforms as part of the transition to a market economy. Since then, ADB has been supporting health sector reforms in the country.
