No nation can afford to provide all the health care that its population wants. Countries can, however, ensure they obtain the greatest benefit from those resources available for health care. Evaluation of health care can help determine which services should be provided and how they should best be organized and delivered.

This book analyses health care interventions, from specific treatments to whole delivery systems, in terms of four key dimensions:

  • Effectiveness
  • Efficiency
  • Humanity
  • Equity

Series Editors: Rosalind Plowman and Nicki Thorogood.
