Course Content

This module attempts to answer the question of which approaches to designing and improving health systems are most likely to resolve current dilemmas. It enables you to understand and critically evaluate healthcare systems in terms of their main features, goals, organisational principles, funding, efficiency, equity of access, social protection and other dimensions. It also provides you with the frameworks and tools needed to undertake analysis of health systems in developed and developing countries. The module will also consider and critically assess the options for reforming health systems.
