From the Publisher:

This text is a multidisciplinary examination of health care systems in a diverse group of countries. Major concepts, perspectives, and issues are introduced, defined, and used as the basis for initial analysis. The demographic, social, economic, and health care status of each country is summarized. Each of the thirteen countries is described and analyzed in considerable detail. The health care system effectiveness of each country is compared using cultural, political, social, and economic criteria. The most successful features of each health care system are highlighted and summarized as a basis for recommending reforms.

From the Back Cover:

Health care has become a major focus of international concern and a primary political, social, and economic issue in nearly every country. The resources required to meet public demand for high-quality and high technology services are substantial, especially since the average length of life is increasing in most countries with consequent higher per capita expenditures.
