The Health Sector Transformation Plan (HSTP) is the next five-year national health sector strategic plan, which covers EFY 2008-2012 (July 2015 – June 2020). It has been prepared by conducting in-depth situational assessment and performance evaluation of HSDPs; considering the global situation and the country’s global commitment; and most importantly, the goals of the national long-term vision and Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP). The development of the Health Sector Transformation Plan is guided by a roadmap prepared jointly with all relevant stakeholders under the leadership of the Ministry of Health and Regional Health Bureaus. The roadmap clearly stipulated the major steps of the development process, planning approach and methodology and communication strategy. It also clearly indicated the roles and responsibilities of all actors giving due emphasis for the involvement of all relevant stakeholders, including the private sector to ensure commitment by all for the implementation of the strategic plan by having a shared vision.
