    This pack of lectures provides an overview of healthcare systems in Spain, Europe and the USA. It offers a valuable outlook on how history has shaped the different healthcare systems in these regions, it covers the current main providers and their roles, it studies how they are funded and how the healthcare systems allocate resources, and finally discusses hospital organization. These sessions will allow you to become familiar with the main trends and challenges facing health systems today, as well as the current organizational responses to address them. Who are the main service providers? How are they funded? What are their main challenges and concerns? This pack of classes provides the answers to these questions.
