Through examples and case studies drawn from across Europe, Managing for Health explores the management challenge in public health policy and offers pointers to equip students of health management and public health managers with the necessary perspectives and skills to function effectively in the twenty-first century.

The key issues addressed by this book include: * the concept of managing for health, or public health management * the importance of public health management * the skills and frameworks required of managers and practitioners working in health systems * the implications for training and development.
