This book details in great depth the development of democratic governance and health policy in New Zealand. The introduction notes that it provides the first systematic analysis of New Zealand's elected health boards which are unique in terms of health system organization globally. There are calls internationally for research that addresses complexity as well as context in our understanding of large-scale health care reform (Best et al. 2012). This book provides this context through a unique perspective that plots the course of health policy, reform, and change over time in a specific national environment. Across Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries, significant change is occurring in the structure and focus of health care governance, including in the United States and the United Kingdom, but also in Ireland where “marketization” of health care is currently being promulgated.
