Description

As a newly established country, Kosovo has passed different laws that govern main areas and one of the recent law is the one on Health Insurance approved on 2014, aiming to establish universal access to health care services for the citizens and residents of the Republic of Kosovo by making it affordable, and establishing and regulating the public health insurance system.

As it is the first time since the declaration of Independence in 2008, that Kosovo is engaging to establish a health insurance system, therefore, in my view, it would be a great help, to offer an overview on Canada’s health care system, with a slight focus on Ontario Health Insurance Plan. How this program is organized and governed, what are the main problems that are faced for holders of OHIP, how does the supplementary care functions?

Having in mind that Kosovo is on its first footsteps to establish a universal health care system, taking a glimpse on how Canada and its province of Ontario have regulated this system, will be of great worth to different stakeholders.

University for Business and Technology the host of the conference, and a newly operator in health higher education in Kosovo, has strong interests on getting to know more about Canadian perspective, therefore, my aim is to deliver a presentation (poster) on this need, by examining the use of the health care service in Kosovo and a comparison to Canadian Health Care system with focus the province of Ontario.
