About this book

Over the last two decades the countries of South East Europe have engaged in far-reaching reforms of their health systems. However, overviews of reform efforts in this part of Europe have been sorely lacking. This book addresses this shortage through the analysis of key aspects of health reforms and health workforce mobility in South East Europe.

Reviews

This important new book covers both the former Semashko and ex-Yugoslav health systems of South East Europe. It is a very timely update, especially on health reforms in the countries of the former Yugoslavia. Reforms are put in the perspective of their past within Yugoslavia, the upheavals after the country's disintegration and the differences and similarities with the former Semashko systems in the region.

Prof. Peter P. Groenewegen Director of the Netherlands Institute for Health Services Research (NIVEL)
