Abstract

This sweeping text focuses on the reality of healthcare in 28 countries around the world. It is organized by wealth of each nation, and is broken up into three categories: wealthy, transitional, and very poor. From Japan to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the authors discuss each nation's healthneeds, health system organization and management, the cost and price of healthcare, health resources and delivery, and future health outlook.
