Introduction: International Perspectives on Health Policy
4 Pages Posted: 1 Mar 2003
This special issue of Law & Policy examines legal, bioethical, and social science perspectives on the critical problems and choices arising from the rapid changes in the health care systems throughout the industrialized world. Advances in medical technology, the rising costs of health care, and the aging of the industrial populations have made health care a crucible for many of the broader policy concerns facing the world in the new millennium. The purpose of the special issue was for these issues to be addressed in a multidisciplinary forum, to add to the broader spectrum of socio-legal scholarship. Scholars from diverse countries examined a variety of issues from ethical, social science, and clinical perspectives.
