Lithuania

The WHO Country Office, Lithuania was established in May 1994 in Vilnius. The Office is the focal point for WHO activities in Lithuania and includes 2 staff members. In the late 1990s, Lithuania moved away from a system funded mainly by local and state budgets to a mixed system, predominantly funded by the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) through a national health insurance scheme and based on compulsory participation. The main objectives of the health system are improving population health as well as access to and quality of health-care services. The focus is being shifted from treatment towards prevention and healthy lifestyles.
