  • Overview

  • How can we improve health, wealth and societal well-being by investing in health systems?
  • How can we ensure that health systems are sustained in the future?
  • How can we monitor, manage and improve performance so that health systems are as effective and efficient as possible?

    This book looks at health systems from a new perspective. By reviewing the complex relationship between health systems, health and wealth, it argues that health systems need not be, as is often believed, simply a drag on resources but rather can be part and parcel of improving health and achieving better economic growth.

    Aiming to assist policy-makers as they assess the case for investing in health systems, Health Systems,Health, Wealth and Societal Well-being reviews the evidence on:

    • The contribution of health systems to better health and to economic growth
    • The ways that investment in better health can save future health costs as well as boosting economic growth
    • How we can create equitable, sustainable health systems fit for the 21st century
