Healthcare in the Developed World (Public Health Module)

Module Overview

Healthcare systems in developed countries develop through a process of interest group contestation, histrocial conventions and arrangements, and are often characterised by mutually incompatible regulations and legislation. At the current time modern states face diffculties arising from these local contexts and histories, and also challenges which cut across national boundaries. This module will shed light on these challenges and explore the responses of a range of healthcare systems. In discussing these themes the module will take a mutli-disciplinary approach drawing on frameworks from economics, political science and sociology.
