Challenge of Health Sector Reform by Anne Mills

Book Description

New approaches to the management of publicly funded health services in developed countries, plus acknowledgement of government failure to ensure equity and efficiency, have combined to stimulate a widespread movement for health sector reform in low- and middle-income countries. Common policy trends include separating purchaser and provider functions; increased autonomy for public sector organizations such as hospitals; encouraging competition between providers; and increased funding from non-tax sources, such as user fees. This book examines the feasibility and desirability of such reform in low-income countries, based on in-depth case studies in Ghana, Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka, India and Thailand. It asks what capacities governments require to assume effectively these new and often complex roles, and how capable governments appear to be in performing these new functions. On the basis of research findings, the book challenges the conventional reform wisdom, and argues that reform approaches are needed that are more deeply rooted in, and sensitive to, the institutional characteristics of individual countries.
