Health Policy Reform–Driving the Wrong Way?

A Critical Guide to the Global ‘Health Reform’ Industry

By John Lister  

Paperback $39.95

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

“John Lister’s book is a powerful, worldwide critique of the costs and contradictions of market style reforms and privatization.”

— Karen Jennings, Head of Health, UNISON
