A Decade of Health Sector Reform: The Legacy of Neoliberalism
This panel will explore evidence for the effects on health care systems, positive and negative, since the current approaches to 'health reform' have been implemented. After an introductory overview of the topic, panelists will focus on specific results from Mozambique, Guatemala, and Haiti, presenting trends in both health status and the effectiveness of the current health delivery systems in providing necessary services to the poor. The panel will also explore evidence regarding the best roles for NGOs in this process.
