Abstract

This document provides a preliminary assessment of the South Korean health system relative to the goal of universal health coverage, with a particular focus on the financing system and related aspects of provision. In the 2010 World Health Report, universal health coverage is defined as providing everyone in a country with financial protection from the costs of using health care and ensuring access to the health services they need (World Health Organisation 2010). These services should be of sufficient quality to be effective. This document presents data that provide insights into the extent of financial protection and access to needed health services in South Korea.
