Abstract

Presents the results of a comprehensive approach to policy analysis that may serve as an input for health system reform. It combines, in a coherent framework, various analytical tools that have been developed recently, such as measurement of the burden of disease, cost-effectveness analysis to integrate packages of essential interventions, National Health Accounts, assessment of system performance, consumer surveys, and political mapping. These tools were all applied in a study that was carried out in Mexico from August, 1993 through September, 1994. The article concludes that it is necessary to establish a mechanism for shared learning at the global level.
