The Story Behind the Book Purchasing Population Health
Dave explores with Sanne the seminal, Canadian influence and how his sabbatical intellectual paralysis in York England almost resulted in no book. He reminds us of the only italicized sentence in the seminal Evans and Stoddart 1990 paper: “A society that spends so much on health care that it cannot or will not spend adequately on other health enhancing activities may actually be reducing the health of its population.”
