Resource allocation, which refers to the process of identifying and managing public resources, remains a crucial issue to design efficient and equitable systems for individuals, households, firms and institutions. This process takes place at both the macro and micro levels of society. In the case of national health systems, we face budgetary constraints including the gradual aging of the population, and we must decide how, at which level and, most importantly, where to allocate and address public resources. This decision-making process involves many levels of governments as well as several public and private entities such as committees, hospitals, medical equipment, health insurance, etc.
In addition, there could be problems related to the identification and measurement of health needs, which inform the design of the system itself, but could also serve as key factors for its evaluation.

Accordingly, defining health demand and supply should represent a single, coherent and stable approach over time.
