The public/private mix in the funding and delivery of health services: An international survey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Two recently published international surveys show that industrialized Western countries with the greatest government funding and administration of health services have the greatest population coverage and the lowest administrative costs. Countries with central government administration and fiscal controls have the greatest ability to control health care expenditures. Current United States focus on the private sector may be misplaced.
