Different Healthcare Approaches
Emergent
Areas which have this type of healthcare are those of: Bangladesh, Brazil, India and
Kenya.
The doctor to patient ratio in the cities is 500:1 and in rural areas the number is a lot
greater at 7000:1.
The healthcare is seen as a item of personal consumption.
The professional enterprises are very powerful therefore make a large amount of
money of poorer patients.
The state's role in healthcare is very minimal and do not put large amount of money
into the country's healthcare.
Pluralistic
The USA uses the pluralistic healthcare and this means that there are thousands of
independent doctors, pharmacies and clinics.
In these types of healthcare the patients in some cases have to pay large amounts
of money to pay for their healthcare if they do not have insurance.
There is an estimated 44 million people are in the US without insurance in case of a
emergency.
Insurance
Countries which use the insurance/ social security are countries like: France, Japan
and Spain.
In this type of healthcare the patients can choose their doctor, therefore having a
much larger say on what they do.
Physicians operate solo.
Also they are private and publicly ownership of facilities.
NHS
The NHS is supported by the state; therefore the costs are a lot lower than those of
privately owned healthcare.
Mainly the entire healthcare in UK is publicly owned, this is because a lot of the
money which you spend on your taxes gets put back into the NHS.
Socialised
The only countries to do this type of healthcare are that of Cuba and China, where
the entire healthcare is provided by the state.
All of the doctors and physicians are state employed, and are trained in Cuba itself
where there is a special training school for doctors.
Professional associations are very weak or non-existent.
