Chapter 7: Health and healthcare policy

Ian Greener


This chapter examines how health and healthcare policy have developed in the post-1970s’ period, making use of the framework developed in the book, and showing the grave inequalities that underpin our current approaches to health and healthcare. It shows the extent of corporate dominance in respect of our health and healthcare, and the dysfunctional consequences of this. It then presents an alternative view of what we can do to challenge these inequalities.
