HS 349F — Introduction to Health Economics

Meets for one-half semester and yields half-course credit.

Uses examples to illustrate the economic theories that have a developing country focus. Topics covered should prepare students to take on subjects in their more advanced courses such as microeconomics of health care and insurance markets, demand for health care services, demand for insurance, supply of physician services and other medical service. The normative analysis for international health policy and projects includes various aspects of market failure and government intervention and market regulation. Usually offered every year.
