Description


New health systems exist today thanks to the changing nature of diseases as a result of the integration of new technologies and new approaches in care giving and the management of healthcare systems.

This book studies the health inequalities in these new health systems, structured according to the integrated health services approach. The authors investigate a wide range of debates and issues, including the consequences of a collaborative economy on healthcare and the possible “uberization” of a wide range of its services.

The first part of the book offers an overview of the problem of inequalities in the field of health. The second part discusses the possibility of a sustainable and equitable architecture for health systems.
