Citizen participation has been high on health policy agendas across the developed world for decades: this alone justifies efforts to understand the policies and practices which have sprung up in response. However, if we also intrinsically care about the project of healthcare as a public good, requiring responsiveness to citizens and respect for their agency, then our need for a full understanding of what participation means and does in contemporary health systems becomes even more pressing.
