The Health System (HS) in the Islamic Republic of Iran is designed in three levels: the first level (Primary Health Care (PHC) system), second level (specialized polyclinics/clinics, general and specialized hospitals), and the third level including sub-specialized hospitals. Iran's HS has passed evolutionary and progressive stages since 1984, thus becoming a comprehensive, people-centered, responsive, and low-cost system, based on the available evidence.
