This new collection turns a critical anthropological eye on the nature of health policy internationally.

The authors define an ‘anthropology of policy’ concerned with decision-making and the impact of health policy on human lives. It will be a critical resource for researchers and practitioners in medical anthropology, medical sociology, public policy, and public health care.
