1. Improving the stewardship role of government.
2. Strengthening the national health system and its management
3. Improving availability of health resources and their management
4. Reducing the burden of disease
5. Improving access to quality health services
6. Improving consumer’s awareness and community involvement
7. Promoting effective partnership, collaboration and coordination
