It also examines the things that affect our health and are influential in our ability to avoid sickness. read more »»

The distance between people and the healthcare facilities or the mode of payment is just as important as the treatment itself. Health economics also studies how the resources are spread within society. So long there is any type of scarcity, there will be a need to know how the resources are allocated.
