About this product
- DescriptionSince the 1980s, Australians have had a system of universal health care that we largely take for granted. But the road there wasn't easy. Making Medicare is a comprehensive account of the Australia's long, tortuous and unconventional path towards universal health care - as it was established, abolished and introduced again - and of the reforms that brought it into being. With its detailed investigation of the policy debates that have determined the shape of health care in Australia, this book is the most thorough survey of Medicare's history published to date. But it is t just about the past. The authors offer a timely overview of further reforms needed to address the challenges facing our health care system: new techlogies, the ageing population and the rising tide of chronic disease.
