(English) Book

This monograph to draw up a prescription for
restructuring the health system of India based
on the experience of Indonesia and Thailand.
The monograph has been structured in six
sections. Section I is introductory. Sections

scenario and the salient features of the health
system in India, Indonesia and Thailand.
Section V attempts a comparative analysis
of those important features of the three
countries that have a prescriptive significance
for the health system; and from that identifies
certain prescriptive conclusions that could
be of use to India, a country that is only
beginning its journey towards devising a
healthcare system with universal coverage.
Finally, Section VI sets out some analytical
observations considered appropriate as a
conclusion to the monograph.
It may be mentioned that the approach in this
monograph is to compare the major features
of the health systems in the three countries.
