Written as a textbook for International health, comparative studies, global health, international affairs, health administration and public health, Global Health Systems helps students to think more deeply about how health care is organized. The friendly style of writing engages the learner in understanding how health systems are interdependent and stresses what one system can learn from the other. The book presents a variety of real life, stimulating examples of what can go wrong at the health system level and practice level with suggestions for preventing future problems. Review questions are included at the end of each chapter summarizing major points and facilitating critical thinking, problem-solving, and informed decision-making particularly when addressing health care, cost, quality, and true access.
