Health and poverty issues differ markedly from country to country contexts, with countries emerging from and affected by conflicts presenting a particular challenge.

Jack begins with measures of mortality and morbidity and their historical trends.

    The result is a wide variety of medical insurance systems, from health maintenance organisations HMOs which combine provision and insurance to informal insurance systems. In particular, consumers underinvest in cost-effective products for prevention and non-acute care of communicable disease and are very sensitive to the price and convenience of these products. Chapter Preview Top Background India, with its huge population of more than 1 billion and diverse geography that includes inaccessible hilly regions, tribal areas, deserts, coasts and islands, has long been struggling to provide minimum required health care to the people. Pioneering countries and new research have added to the argument in favour of universal health care. There are several approaches to intervention to correct for these — Jack analyses immunization as an example — and public provisioning is an alternative.
