Topic: International View – Different Countries, Same Problems

Talk synopsis: With a hundred years of health systems behind us we know a great deal about what works and what doesn’t work in the health market. Countries such as the UAE are perfectly positioned to benefit from this vast body of knowledge, but it’s complex! In this seminar we will consider key questions such as who should pay for health? Why is the health market unique and why are countries, with very different health systems, facing the same challenges controlling health expenditure?
