This book explores how political, social, economic and institutional factors have combined to generate diverse outcomes in eight selected emerging economies in their move towards universal health care. Structured in three parts, the book begins by framing social policy as an integral system in its own right. The following two parts go on to discuss the opportunities and challenges of achieving universal health coverage in Thailand, Brazil and China, and survey the obstacles facing countries such as Russia and Venezuela in the reform of their health care systems. The historical evolution of social policy systems and the eight cases in this volume demonstrate that universalism in health is continuously redefined by the interactions between diverse political forces and through specific policy processes. At a time when international and national-level discourse around health systems has once again brought universalism to the fore, this edited collection offers a timely contribution to the field in its thorough analysis of health care reform in eight emerging economies.
