The effectiveness of healthcare systems varies greatly, and the ability to achieve important health objectives varies between welfare regimes and nations. In order to improve our understanding of how health systems perform under various welfare regimes, this paper offers a framework that establishes this relationship. As a result, the purpose of this paper is to present a framework that could be utilized to construct a connection between a country’s welfare system and its health system. The first stage is to establish the parameters of welfare regimes based on the notions of governance and power usage. The study goes on to discuss the concept of the health system, the performance of the health system, and how these concepts relate to welfare regimes. Within these constraints, health system performance focuses on three essential objectives: strengthening responsiveness to the population's expectations, ensuring fairness of financial contribution, and improving health. Once the fundamental objectives of health systems have been identified, they must be measured, and a conceptual relationship between welfare regimes and health systems must be established. By developing a framework for the interactions between welfare regimes and the health system, it is possible to understand the primary factors affecting the functioning of health system as well as to consider important policy issues and formulations.
