About this book


A health policy for the future is the topic of discussion in this book. International scientists discuss central questions corresponding to the targets set by the World Health Organization (WHO). In a unique meeting, social political proposals and recommendations are presented for a regional health care system that includes public involvement. Separate sections of the book treat the primary health care system in relation to public involvement, family medicine, epidemiology, health economics, and institutional requirements.
