What People are Saying About This

Katherine Boothe

"In providing a systematic and comprehensive description of health system decentralization in eight different countries, Federalism and Decentralization in Health Care achieves an ambitious goal, and will be of interest to scholars of both health policy and federalism. This book provides a snapshot of both federal and health policy institutions in a wide variety of cases, and uses a framework that makes them comparable."
