Edited by Richard M. Scheffler, Distinguished Professor of Health Economics and Public Policy and Director of the Global Center for Health Economics and Policy Research at the University of California, Berkeley, the Handbook features academics and practitioners from more than a dozen countries. Contributors are from the London School of Economics and Political Science, Catolica University in Chile, Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, University of York, University of Oslo, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, University of California – Berkeley, University of California – San Francisco, Stanford University, John Hopkins University, University of Toronto, University of Oxford, Harvard Medical School, OECD, and the World Bank, many of whom have also acted as economic and policy advisors to government and non-governmental organizations across the world.

The Handbook spans across three volumes. The chapters deal with key global issues in health economics, are evidence-based, and offer innovative policy alternatives and solutions. The Handbook’s approach toward global health economics and public policy will make it a useful resource for health economists, policymakers, private sector companies, NGOs, government decision-makers and those who manage healthcare systems.
