Hamza ATEŞ [1] , Harun KIRILMAZ [2]


Koronavirüs hastalığı 2019 (coronavirus disease 2019, COVID-19) pandemisi, insan sağlığı üzerindeki etkisi ve tüm dünya üzerindeki yayılımı itibariyle en ölümcül pandemiler arasında yer almıştır. Bu salgının yarattığı etki sağlık başta olmak üzere sosyal, ekonomik ve beşerî boyutta kurumsal dönüşümlere neden olmuştur. Mevcut duruma dair sorunların belirlenmesi ve çözüm önerilerinin geliştirilmesi noktasında, sağlık sistemlerinin performansını analiz etmek, kısa vadede pandeminin etkilerini en aza indirecek olan politika önerilerinin geliştirilmesine fırsat tanırken, uzun vadede ise sağlık sektöründe hizmet sunumuna yeni perspektifler kazandırabilir. Bu çalışma, COVID-19 pandemisinde Türk sağlık sisteminin performansını değerlendirmeyi ve sorunlara çözüm noktasında katkıda bulunmayı hedeflemektedir. Çalışma kapsamında, COVID-19 salgınının ekonomik, sosyal ve teknolojik etkileri tartışılmış ve sağlık sistemi üzerindeki etkileri de değerlendirilmiştir. Ayrıca bu çalışmada, COVID-19 salgınıyla mücadelede sağlık sisteminin performansı ile siyasi ve yönetimsel sistemin yansımaları da tartışılmıştır. Bunun yanı sıra, bu çalışmanın COVID-19 pandemisiyle mücadelede atılan adımların etkinliği konusunda değerlendirme yapma imkânı da sağlayacağı düşünülmektedir. Çalışma sonucunda, küresel bir salgın durumunda sağlık hizmetlerinin sunumuna dair bir model önerisinin ortaya konulabilmesi mümkün olacaktır. Ayrıca, COVID-19 pandemisinde Sağlık Bakanlığı'nın sağlık sistemi ve sağlık hizmeti sunumunun değerlendirilmesine de imkan sağlanacağı düşünülmektedir.
The coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is among the deadliest pandemics due to its impact on human health and its spread throughout the world. The impact of this outbreak has led to social, economic and human institutional transformations, especially health. Analyzing the performance of health systems at the point of identifying problems related to the current situation and developing solution suggestions, while providing opportunities to develop policy suggestions that will minimize the effects of the pandemic in the short term, can provide new perspectives to service delivery in the long term. This study aims to evaluate the performance of the Turkish health system in the COVID-19 pandemic and to contribute to the solution of problems. Within the scope of the study, the economic, social and technological effects of the COVID-19 pandemic were discussed, and its effects on the health system were evaluated. In the study, the performance of the health system and the reflections of the political and administrative system on the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic were also discussed. It is thought that this study will provide an opportunity to evaluate the effectiveness of the steps taken in combating the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of the study, it will be possible to put forward a model proposal for the provision of health services in case of a global epidemic. In addition, in the COVID-19 pandemic, it is thought that the Ministry of Health will allow the evaluation of the health system and health service delivery.
