This chapter discusses some of the key policy issues related to health systems that public health managers face. This is important both in terms of understanding the ‘bigger picture’ and in seeing how they can get involved in influencing them. Having given this broad overview of global policies, the chapter then looks at what is meant by a health system and what are its key elements.
