8-12 February 2016: Lecture Series on "The Public Economics of Health Policy in Developing Countries"

Jeffrey S. Hammer
Princeton University

This talk presents the basic principles of public economics as it applies to the health sector in developing countries. It identifies the characteristic market failures related to health and healthcare, examining three broad categories of policies: 1) public goods, preventive and promotive services 2) primary, curative, health care and 3) hospital based care or insurance. Going somewhat beyond standard economics, it compares the potential welfare improvement of the different categories of interventions to their relative difficulty of implementation to discuss priority setting given practical constraints. While general in scope, most examples are drawn from Indian experience and research.
