The Moroccan government has adopted draft proposals to fundamentally change the way in which the health system is financed. The proposals seek to introduce healthcare coverage for all of the nation's citizens for the first time ever. The government is to establish a mechanism to fund healthcare provision for people on low income or the unemployed. It will also examine ways to set up a contribution scheme for people with stable incomes. Previously only salaried workers and retired citizens were eligible for coverage. The government hopes that this will raise the general level of healthcare in the country.
