It explores four key questions currently facing health policy-makers across the globe: 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 settingpriorities?The book is an ideal guide to everyone interested in how the tools of health economics can be applied when shaping health policy.
