Health care and the nation's economic and social agenda

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The current system of relying on year-to-year changes in health financing programs, without any consensus on a long-range plan, leads to gimmickry and instability in the health system. It gives undue weight to the social objective of cutting budgetary outlays rather than to basing health policy on social goals to be achieved in the health sector.
