Over the last two decades, the countries of South East Europe have engaged in far-reaching reforms of their health systems, including reforms of primary and secondary health care, new governance and funding arrangements, the privatization of health care provision, and the introduction of health insurance systems. However, comparative overviews of reform efforts in this part of Europe have been sorely lacking so far. This book addresses this shortage through the analysis of key aspects of health reforms in South East Europe, including primary health care, hospital care, health financing, decentralization and the internal and international migration of health workers.

The book will be of interest to a range of audiences, including researchers, medical practitioners and policy-makers.
