This book provides a multi-disciplinary framework for developing and analyzing health sector reforms, based on the authors' extensive international experience
Getting Health Reform Right offers practical guidance -- useful to policymakers, consultants, academics, and students alike -- and stresses the need to take account of each country's economic, administrative, and political circumstances. The authors explain how to design effective government interventions in five areas -- financing, payment, organization, regulation, and behavior -- to improve the performance and equity of health systems around the world.
