Different perspectives have been presented about the fact that what percentage of people’s health is at the disposal of an organization named the Ministry of Health and Medical Education and its subsidiary universities and a share of 10 to 25 percent is accounted for it. In other words, the major part of factors affecting the health of people is beyond the control of the health system. Many factors, such as genetics, economic, social, as well as cultural issues and, most importantly, lifestyle and human behavior play significant roles in the incidence of diseases and occurrence of accidents. Therefore, health goals will not be achieved unless all executive agencies and people are involved in improving health care indicators.
