This reader offers a contemporary view of organization and functioning of health care systems around the world. It takes a multidisciplinary approach drawing from sociology, medicine, geography and public health. The text provides an international perspective by describing health care systems in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, North America, Latin America and Europe. It examines how modern medicine must find its place in pre-existing social structures and with pre-scientific beliefs about the human body and its pathologies.
