Background: Optimal performance of health care tasks by the government in a way that promotes public health and development of the country is one of the most important pillars of governance.
Objective: This study aims to present an optimization model for performing health care tasks by the Iranian government. In this model, the optimal interaction of governmental actors at the three action levels of governance (individual, organizational, and systemic) is examined.
Methods: This is an applied descriptive study. Participants were 8 governmental management experts and 350 managers and deputies of the public, private, and non-governmental organizations in Iran. Data were collected by a researcher-made questionnaire. For designing the research model, fuzzy inference system was used.
Findings: Promoting health care at the individual, organizational, and systemic levels was effective in optimally performance of the health care tasks by the government. At the individual level, civil society had a more important role, while the private and public sectors had a more important at the organizational and systemic levels, respectively. 
Conclusion: For optimal performance of macro-tasks in the field of health care, the Iranian government needs to pay more attention to the interaction of civil society and the private, public, and military sectors.
