Health Systems in the Developing World
This teaching note offers an approach to the evaluation of health care markets globally. The note prepares students with a set of questions about the organization of core elements of the health care system. The organization of these elements can vary across markets, and can vary in terms of the different roles of the public and private sector in financing and delivery of health care services. Overall, the framework provides an opportunity for a structured analysis of any market in health care, and provides students with a comprehensive approach to assessing the current health care market. Students can build from this framework with their own assessments of potential opportunities for business or policy innovation within the market.
