Veena Rodrigues's curator insight, September 24, 2014 6:03 AM

Interesting critique of the cancer drugs fund - is it equitable?

Other things to think about - does it undermine NICE guidance?? Is it responding to those who shout loudest?

Willingness to Pay for Public Health Policies to Treat Illnesses

JHE: http://t.co/40MnxueqjE Willingness to Pay for Public Health Policies to Treat Illnesses

Veena Rodrigues's curator insight, November 7, 2014 8:52 AM

This study has explored a number of patterns in popular support, and thus willingness to pay, for publicly funded health care policies—a topic of considerable relevance in this era of debate over health care reform. The authors identified a considerable aversion, in the general population, to the prospect of “paying for socialized medicine.” The massive influence of self-interest in willingness to pay

for alternative policies is also consistent with observed patterns of support for publicly versus privately provided health care in current healthcare debates.
