Health Politics and Policy (Section 39)

The organized section on Health Politics and Policy provides the ideal infrastructure in which members can more thoroughly, efficiently arm themselves with the additional expertise we need to explore health politics and policy questions. The Section will define “health politics and policy” just as broadly as the phrase implies. Everything from the politics of Medicare Part D to the politics of women’s health; everything from comparative politics of AIDS in Africa, Eastern Europe, and South Asia to the comparative state politics of Medicaid and SCHIP, everything from the ethics of end of life decisions to the regulation of stem cell research, everything from public budgeting and regulation to public health disaster preparedness – all these and more fall with the scope of the Section.
