More Prescription for Change: Case Studies for Applications of Strategy and Strategic Intervention in National and International Health Systems in Response to a COVID Pandemic


Series: Public Health in the 21st Century
BISAC: MED078000

Target Audience: Undergraduate and graduate students training to be health professionals, researchers in health sciences.

This book illustrates the use of strategy by national and international groups using fictional case studies. The cases are fictional in the sense that the information provided was not collected using the methodology used for previous case studies about states or groups of states. Instead, the author combined characteristics and information as she saw necessary in order to make the example clear to the reader. The case studies include: an infra-national group strategizing to cope with a phenomenon, an individual, another infra-national group, a supranational group, a government or state, and a group of government or states. It also includes the study of a phenomenon, here COVID-19. The present book also differs from previous case studies to the extent that the various components of the strategy are not clearly identified. This will allow the self-taught strategist to use them to test their own skills at strategic analysis.
