Contact Hours: 20-24 hours of study per week

Credit Points: 6


Health systems, whether in developing or developed countries, must continually adapt to emerging challenges, which is why health sector reform is an ongoing process. ‘Developing health systems’ contextualises these challenges. By assessing a recent case study of health care reform, you will have the opportunity to explore alternative conceptual frameworks for analysing health care systems, with an emphasis on the “control knobs framework”, which describes the key levers of a health care system, and how these levers work to influence outcomes of interest such as equity, cost, financial risk protection and quality of care.
