Paying For India′s Health Care is a timely collection of articles by many of India′s most eminent health economists and health policy analysts. It brings together wide-ranging original material that, until now, was only available to some government and interntional agencies and to specialists who had access to unpulbished reports. It draws from the best of these recent studies and presents them in a form that will interest specialists in health care financing as well as generalists who are concerned with the development of one of the world′s largest health care systems. Topics addressed include public health expenditures at national and state levels, the development and functioning of public and private hospitals, health insurance, the private health sector, household health expenditures, and the financing of national nutrition programs. Scholars and students interested in health policy, planning, and financing in India will find much of value in this pioneering volume.
