Description

Global health policy, administration, and practice continue to evolve while countries throughout the world seek to balance their economic and health goals through health system reform, improvement, and modification. The Second Edition of Comparative Health Systems: A Global Perspective addresses emerging events, advances, reforms, and challenges in the delivery of health care around the world.

In Part II, the health systems of 22 unique countries are each examined in their own chapter including France, United Kingdom, Canada, Brazil, Peru, Nigeria, Australia, China, Japan, Russia, and Israel. These chapters carefully explore the country’s geography and culture, the history of its health system, followed by a detailed evaluation of cost, quality, access and innovation.
