  1. Priority setting in health care : learning from international experience.

    Article - En anglais

    Traduction en français : Choix des priorités dans le système de soins : leçons des expériences internationales.

    Priority setting in health care is not an issue of growing importance.

    In publicly financed health care systems, the combinaison of constrained resources and increasing demands has led policy makers to adress this issue more directly than in the past.

    This is exemplified by experience in Oregon, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden and The UK.

    In each of these systems, policy makers have taken the initiative to set priorities on a more explicit basis.

    This paper compares and contrasts experience in these systems and identifies a number of emerging themes.

    The work done so far can be likened to an exercice in policy learning in which policy makers have tried out a range of approaches and have adjusted course several times in the process.

    Priority setting is not amenable to once and for all solutions and the issues involved must be kept under continous review.
