Special Issue on A Comparative Analysis of Health Care in a Globalizing World: Recent Trends in Developing Nations
Guest Editor: Prof. Ronn Pineo Chair, History Department, Towson University, Towson, Maryland

The Journal of Developing Societies calls for article manuscript proposals to explore medical and public health care achievement in recent years in developing world nations.

A core goal of this volume will be to evaluate the efficacy of different approaches to health care, comparing those systems that focus more on curative medicine against those that emphasize preventive measures, public sanitation, and poverty reduction. Special attention will be given to differences in economic policy contexts, comparing public health outcomes in those nations which follow free market policies, often turning to for-profit health care corporations to provide health care, to those that have rejected neoliberalism and look to government to play a central role in public health care. A particular concern will be to evaluate what difference has been made by the rise of the progressive left in many nations in recent years. Some nations in the developing world have clearly enjoyed more success in the area of public health. What policies approaches have worked best? What models of success are there, and are they likely to work in different social, cultural, and political contexts?

Please send a one-page article-manuscript prospectus to: Professor Ronn Pineo, Chair, History Department, Towson University, Towson, Maryland 21252 or e-copy to Pineo@towson.edu.

Deadline for submission of manuscripts: November 30, 2017
