Omtale Health Policy Reform
Offering a coherent, developed critique of neoliberal health policies that have become the common denominator of "health reforms" on a global level, this work questions whether these major "reforms" are driven by the health needs of the wider population or, in fact, by nonhealth considerations such as financial and political concerns of governments and global institutions. It presents the key issues facing health professionals today and explores the barrage of policies that threaten to deny them the right to deliver quality health care. The book's use of a common analytical framework produces a consistent critical analysis of different situations in various countries, making its approach wholly unlike previous studies of the topic of modern healthcare. Providing an alternative to the prevailing orthodoxy that has captured the global health agenda since 1978, it offers hope and support campaigners, students, academics, medics, and administrators.
