  • Health Policy Reform–Driving the Wrong Way?

    A Critical Guide to the Global ‘Health Reform’ Industry

    By John Lister     January 2005

    John Lister has provided the definitive critique of market-oriented health care ‘reforms’ that the World Bank has been promoting at least since 1993. His book is a critical contribution to the struggle for equity-oriented, rights-based approaches to health systems in rich and poor countries alike.– Ronald Labonte, Canadian Research Chair and Ted Schrecker, Senior Policy Researcher, Institute of Population Health, University of Ottawa
