The term ‘healthcare system resilience’ becomes topical in strategies and policy planning documents around the world, particularly in the scope of the COVID-19 pandemic. United Nations General Assembly has defined resilience as ‘the ability of a system, community or society exposed to hazards to resist, absorb, accommodate, adapt to, transform and recover from the effects of a hazard in a timely and efficient manner, including through the preservation and restoration of its essential basic structures and functions through risk management.’ The aim of this conceptual paper was to highlight the contextual framework and principal indicators of the healthcare system resistance.
