In Search of the Perfect Health System is the first book to comprehensively examine healthcare systems across the globe in order to answer the all-important question: what does the ‘perfect’ health system look like?
The book focuses on compelling case studies of countries whose healthcare systems offer inspiration and insight for the rest of the world.
Britnell explores how elements of healthcare systems as diverse as those found in India, South Africa and Singapore can contribute to meeting the global healthcare challenge, demonstrating how collaboration on a global scale can tackle these challenges.
Each of the 25 countries is put under the microscope revealing the different ways nations respond to the healthcare challenges faced today.
From the UK’s struggle with competition in the NHS to the rise of universal healthcare in the US; from the ticking time bomb of Japan’s aging population to the Nordics’ early years health education, the book is a timely and well informedexamination of the best – and worst – examples of healthcare from around the world.
