Public Health in Developed Countries

  • Poverty not only excludes people from the benefits of health-care systems but also restricts them from participating in decisions that affect their health.
  • The resulting health inequalities are well documented, and the search for greater equity attracts many concerned players and initiatives.
  • Fundamental to the success of these efforts, however, is the need for people to be able to negotiate their own inclusion into health systems and demand adequate health care.
  • There are strog relations between having a well established public health care system and
    being a wealthy country.

Developed countries are aware of the strong relationship between Public Health services and development. The backbone of Health Services has been defined as Public Health system.
Public Health services have been institutionalized in developed country.
Public Health institutions are scientifically free, administratively and financially autonomous.
