Tunisia

Tunisia is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa with a population of 11 million people and a life expectancy at birth of 74 years (males) and 78 years (females). Tunisia’s government was traditionally centralized and autocratic; a palpable will to work in a collaborative and participatory manner has followed the 2011 revolution. WHO is working closely with the MoH to re-orient the health sector towards primary health care objectives, taking into accounts the needs of vulnerable population sub-groups, and trying to improve both quality of care and efficiency of the health system. This has also led to the ‘dialogue sociétal’ in health, a large scale consultation to better capture population views, needs and expectations. The second phase was launched in 2017; a key output will be the development of a new national health strategy aiming towards 2030 and the attainment of UHC.
