1 Review
The way in which a health service is financed has significant implications for the quality and scope of the care provided and is, therefore, a fundamental issue in health-services provision. Financing Health Care provides examples of different financial systems which have been implemented in response to a variety of community health-care needs, and is an invaluable resource for managers, health workers, and members of the community who are involved with non-government health programmes.

I am a medical student in 4th year. I really found this book totally helpful especially in fields of financing. It is also easy to read especially for people who are not economics students.
