Health Care Patterns and Planning in Developing Countries


This collection of original essays addresses the issue of health care in the Third World, focusing on its spatial organization, the levels of inequality, and the socioeconomic and political forces that govern its delivery in different countries. Unlike other books on this topic, this work draws on investigative studies conducted in Asian, African, and South American countries, describing the need for realistic health care planning and offering some directions that countries might take to achieve this end.
