Health systems in low- and middle-income countries: an economic and policy perspective outlines the key aspects and issues concerning health systems of low- and middle-income countries, recognising the current global context within which these systems operate and the dynamics of this context. It brings together a set of renowned authors to tackle the issues that face population health and health care in the twenty-first century. The focus is predominantly low- and middle-income countries, with a distinct meeting of economic and policy perspectives, and grounding analysis of key issues within the broader international context. The book therefore provides a unique and comprehensive analysis of health systems, with a very different and unique 'flavour' in the field. It should have wide appeal to those engaged in health and health care, including health professionals, researchers and students, as well as those outside traditional health professions but with increasing interest within health issues, such as trade policy makers, researchers and students.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The purpose is to present healthcare systems within the international arena in a nontechnical way to attract a wide range of readers. There are many health systems books on the market. This one focuses on low- and middle-income countries yet makes the content applicable to the world. The fact that it is written in a less technical fashion than most increases its appeal to a wide spectrum of readers. * Doody's Review *
For anyone interested in health systems this book is a good read, you should not miss it if you are also interested in health in low- and middle-income countries. * Journal of Public Health *
