Abstract:

Besides the mono-disciplinary study of medicine, many African universities and think tanks started to develop ‘health sciences’, with a broader emphasis on the relationships between health and society. And there are interesting examples of an emerging interdisciplinary field of studies dealing with the economics of health care, and the relationships between economy and society on the one hand, and the way health care functions and is being funded. Core papers will deal with experiences in Ethiopia, but other papers are being invited about experiences elsewhere.
