This chapter defines a health care system as the mechanism in any society that transforms or metabolizes inputs of knowledge, and human and financial resources into outputs of services relevant to the health concerns in that society. It emphasizes that the promotion of health is not the domain of the health care system alone, since other social systems bear upon the effective, humane, and equitable operation of the health system in each society.
