Health Care and Social Services in the Peoples Republic of Poland.
Stambler, Moses
Health care and social services in Poland are affected by the culture context of geography, demography, and culturally induced expansion in historical periods. Health and financing of health services are issues with significant political ramifications and, despite egalitarian ideology, there is differential access to care and services. The organization and administration of health care and services includes centralization of policy and financing, as well as regionalization of services. Private health care co-exists with the public sector. Health care data on Poland, as well as problems of health and nutrition, are discussed in this report. Also discussed are issues of health care, including meeting basic needs, maldistribution, physician imbalance, and operational and supply problems. (Author/JD)
