Abstract: Within the European Union, Romania detains the last place as regards the share of health allocated incomes within the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Romania which allocates a small percent of its GDP faces a chronic financing deficit that has as a result a low performance of the system and requires the searching of solutions capable to increase the incomes to be used for health purposes. Irrespective of the adopted financing system, we consider that providing the funds required by the health field has been and still is an issue of governmental policies.
