Choked Pipes: Reforming Pakistan’s Mixed Health System

The title of this book underscores the importance of a key point through its analogy with a “choked pipe”–systems plagued by systemic challenges simply cannot deliver on desired public policy endpoints. Within this context, Choked Pipes¬†is the first consolidated review of Pakistan’s health system, which describes the Mixed Health Systems Syndrome and the challenges in an environment where publicly funded government health delivery coexists with privately-financed market delivery. The author’s vision for reform draws attention to a number of structural factors, both within and outside of the healthcare system and lays emphasis on reform of governance and social welfare as an important adjunct to reform within the healthcare system.
