Bogomtale fra forlaget.

This paper attempts to cover some of the main debates related to health politics in the hope of eliciting among trade unions a more vivid debate about the broad picture of health, social justice and a fairer world. At the same time the paper suggests for consideration some primary guidelines on policy making, recognizing the fact that a national health policy would need to reflect society’s values about health and the health problems of people. More importantly, a national health policy should first and foremost involve people and people’s representative organizations.
