Public hospital governance in Asia and Pacific


posted by WM Admin on 18 May 2015

The Asia Pacific Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (APO) launched an initiative in 2013 to undertake an in-depth analysis of public hospital governance. A two-stage project was initiated with the following objectives: 1. to describe the policy context, recent policy developments and reforms in regard to public hospital governance and performance; 2. to describe and assess publicly-owned hospital governance and performance in selected countries; and 3. to contribute to comparative analyses across different country settings on public hospital governance and performance (stage 2).

This volume reports on the first stage of the project, presenting results from a series of country case studies produced by national authors from seven countries in the region, including New Zealand.
