World Health Systems Challenges and Perspectives, Second Edition focuses on the realities of 26 health systems around the world. The chapters are written by a representative of each country, who gives readers a first-hand glimpse at the countrys health system and the health status. Six introductory chapters provide a framework to help you understand key concepts applicable to all health systems. New introductory chapters focus on defining a health system, health system strengthening, health system regulation, and the politics of health system reform. With discussions of infrastructures as diverse as those found in Japan, Brazil, and Kenya, the authors profile each countrys health system organization, current and emerging health policy issues, cost and financing of healthcare, health resources and delivery, and future health outlook.
