Academic Paper from the year 2021 in the subject Health - Fitness and Health Management, grade: 4.51, language: English, abstract: This article describes what the main components of a national health policy should be, including the political, economic, social, and cultural determinants of health, the most important determinants of health in any country; the lifestyle determinants, which have been the most visible types of public interventions; and the socializing and empowering determinants, which link the first and second components of a national health policy. The individual interventions and the collective interventions. The author discusses the indicators that should be used for each component and for each intervention. The feasibility of this approach depends to a large degree on the political will of the national authorities and the broad understanding of the actual determinants of health. A good first step is the National Health Policy plan developed by the Swedish social democratic government. This article builds on and expands on that model. The National Health Policy thrust represents the collective will of the governments and people of this country to provide a comprehensive health care system that is based on primary health care. It describes the goals, structure, strategy and policy direction of the health care delivery system in Nigeria. It defines the roles and responsibilities of the three tiers of government without neglecting the non-governmental actors. Its long-term goal is to provide the entire population with adequate access not only to primary health care but also to secondary and tertiary services through a well-functioning referral system. Unfortunately, most nation states have taken "health policy" to mean "medical care policy." Medical care, however, is only one variable in a nation's health equation.
