Why, despite the vast resources spent on health care, is there still so much ill health and health inequality? In this devastating critique, internationally renowned health economist Gavin Mooney spotlights the political economy of health care. He also reveals how too little is done to address the social determinants of health. Using numerous case studies, including the UK, USA, South Africa and Cuba, this provocative book argues that health policy should be returned to the communities it serves, and it makes a compelling case for the need to re-evaluate how we approach health and health care globally.
