This groundbreaking Handbook brings together the two timely subject matters of political economy of health and health care into one comprehensive book. Containing up-to-date discussions on these key topics, it provides an interdisciplinary approach and a better understanding of health policy making.

Highlighting the key theoretical and empirical debates in academia and policy across a variety of scholarly groups, this Handbook shows the differing methods and principles applied while sharing the common goal of understanding the institutional mechanisms, constraints and determinants that influence decision-making. Split into six thematic parts, the expert contributors discuss the design of health care systems, political markets, financing and policy reforms, and healthcare during pandemics, as well as providing insightful lessons to be learnt for the future.

Scholars and professionals interested in an in-depth state-of-the-art companion to the main issues under discussion of the effects of the design in our health systems, along with the constraints that they face, will find this Handbook an excellent resource.
Critical Acclaim
‘Health systems and reforms in the health sector play a fundamental role in policy-making and in the political process, as emphasized during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. This book collects important contributions to develop an innovative view of the political economy of health systems, where political and economic factors interact in determining policy decisions in the health care domain. The book provides an excellent unified, broad and thorough vision of one of the most promising and interdisciplinary areas of the current and future political economy debate.’
