Written in an accessible manner this text will also appeal to non-economists, as it explores the key questions currently facing healthpolicy-makers across the globe. With issues including: How should society intervene in the determinants that affect health? How should healthcare be financed? How should healthcare providers be paid? And, how should alternative healthcare programmes be evaluated when setting priorities?The book is an ideal reference for non-economists interested in how the tools of health economics can be applied when shaping health policy.
