Abstract

The function of the state in providing health services is divided into the regulatory function, the controlling
function, the entrepreneurial function and the supervisory function. In the regulatory function, the state
develops policies in the field of health services that ensure that all people can enjoy health services. The
state control function is responsible for the availability of equipment and medicines as well as maintaining
the stability of the flow of health service distribution. In the entrepreneurial function, the state in addition to
providing health services can receive income from health services which can later be used to equalize the
costs of health care dependents, especially for the poor and underprivileged. In the oversight function, the
state is responsible for carrying out full supervision of health facilities in order to optimally provide health
services to the people.Keywords: State functions, health services, the right to health.
