The Politics of Healthcare Hillsdale College

5 hours ago

1. Ideals are one thing, Washington is another. The political realties of Washington, coupled with the brutal 1993-94 Clinton healthcare battle, have caused both political parties to reevaluate their political health-care strategies. The past 15 years have been marked by a much more politically calculated and incremental approach. Democrats, having lost not only the Clinton initiative but control of the House of Representatives, regrouped into a defensive position. Throughout their years in the minority, the party’s primary political focus was to stymie any Republican efforts at more free-market reform, particular in the area of government entitlement programs. Arguably their greatest success was the 2003 fight over a new prescription drug benefit for Medicare. At least some Republicans went into that fight determined to insist on sweeping Medicare reform as a price of adding a limited drug-entitlement program. The initial conservative plan was to tie any drug benefit to senior partici...

How Political Systems & Leaders Affect Health Care Policy

12.29.2353 hours ago

1. It's important to remember that the United States, a democratic government, delivers health care through its political systems. You may think that all the decisions are coming from the White House, and yes, a lot of the big decisions are made there. But it is important to remember that state and town governments also have elected officials who implement health care decisions. 1. At the national levelthere are three branches of government: judicial, executive (led by the president) and legislative. These branches seek advice and guidance from health research organizations, such as the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and NIH (National Institute of Health). 2. At the state levelthere are also three branches: judicial, executive (led by the governor) and legislative. Towns or cities also have elected officials who lead the town in health care implementation. Finally, neighborhoods might have committees and teams that implement health care as well.

Towards a politics of health Health Promotion

12.29.2355 hours ago

1. It is profoundly paradoxical that, in a period when the importance of public policy as a determinant of health is routinely acknowledged, there remains a continuing absence of mainstream debate about the ways in which the politics, power and ideology, which underpin it influence people's health. For a rare example see Navarro and Shi (Navarro and Shi, 2001). While to some extent the unhealthy policies of the Reagan and Thatcher governments of 20 years ago acted as a stimulus to such debate, as early as the mid-1980s, the introduction of the World Health Organization's Health For All strategy (World Health Organization, 1985) created the illusion that these issues had finally—and adequately—been acknowledged. Experience since then suggests that such views can and very clearly should be challenged. In this article we argue that health, and its promotion, are profoundly political. We explore the possible reasons behind the absence of a ‘politics of health’ in mainstream debate and demo...

Political Aspects of Health MERIP

12.29.2354 hours ago

1. The influx of oil monies created a rapidly expanding market for sales of Western medical equipment and expertise, particularly in the wealthier countries. Between 1970 and 1985, Saudi Arabia opened 80 hospitals. By the end of this year, the kingdom expects to have more than 250 hospitals, ranging from small general facilities in rural areas to highly specialized units in the cities. The United Arab Emirates, with a million and a half citizens, has 31 hospitals. Iraq advertises in the Middle East Economic Digest for expatriate specialists to staff Ibn al-Bitar Hospital in Baghdad. The contraction in oil revenues over the past five years, though, is forcing even the richer countries to emphasize maintenance rather than expansion of sophisticated facilities. The essential determinants of good health are the material conditions in which people live — their access to food and shelter and clean water, first and foremost. In most Middle East countries, as elsewhere, such access is extremel...
