The Politics of Healthcare Reform in Turkey

Healthcare reform has been a significant issue across the world for some time. In my humble opinion, diffirent countries have a lot to learn from each other in terms of healhcare, especially developed countries from developing ones. Healthcare reform in Turkey has become a platform for critics, politics, academics and policy makers, as the political system in Turkey was undergoing a significant transformation at the time the Health Transformation Programme (HTP) in Turkey was being implemented in 2003.

 

The book under review is written by Volkan Yılmaz, who is an academician specializing in social politics. Volkan Yılmaz the author takes on the challenge of providing a comprehensive analysis of the political dynamics of the HTP. Methodologically, the book is a case study based on a single country. It examines the political dynamics of Turkish HTP between 2003 and 2013. Empirically overlays the change in healthcare financing with interpretations of politics. Whilst describing the new configuration of power, it also draws on different approaches to healthcare systems. The main focus is the transformation in healthcare system since 2003.
