Summary This comparative social analysis represents the results of the "West European Study of Health (WESH)". It is one of a few systematically comparative social science analyses of such national health systems as Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain. Based on a total of 2500 cases the project analyses problems like health culture, social stratification in its impact on health, health life style and the motivations of people that shape health policies. This book meets both the expectation of descriptive information as well as comprehensive analysis by statistical means and on the background of practical as well as theoretical concerns. The policy implications of the results are eminent. The comparative design is of exemplary importance for health and social science. The book is of interest for public health, health professionals, health policymakers, psychologists, social scientists and political representatives from the community up to the European level.Aus dem Inhalt:Statement and Significance of the Problem: Theoretical, Historical Context and Comparative Methodology * Organization, Present problems and Efficiency of West European Health Care Systems * WESH - Method, Fieldwork, and Selected Indicators of the Study * A Descriptive Overview Concerning Results for Health Behavior in the 5-Nation-Study of WESH * Health Culture in Europe - an Exploration of National and Social Differences in Health-Related Values * Health and Social Stratification * Health Life-Style and Social Stratification * Public and Private Responsibility for Health: A Comparative Analysis towards Financing and the Right for Health Care * From Utilization to Evaluation * Euregional Health Culture: An Exploration
