The government has placed an emphasis on developing its healthcare system, with the goal of establishing a Universal Healthcare System by 2013 as part of its ongoing reforms for the healthcare sector. In 2006, the government formed the Social Security Institution (SSI), which effectively merged the various social security (health insurance) organisations namely SSK, BagKur and Emekli Sandigi.
