Description - Making a Healthy World by Meri Koivusalo
At a time of fundamental changes in international health strategies, this text provides a comprehensive account of the international agencies involved. Succinctly covering their organization, finances, policies and practice, and paying due attention to the increasingly dominant role in health policymaking being played by the World Bank, this book also devotes attention to other actors in the health field, notably non-governmental organizations. It also examines in depth the main areas of international health policy. The book offers a combination of institutional and policy information and analysis, and the assertion that the universal right of people to have access to much needed health services should be the essential basis for any health policy.
