Summary of presentation

Health and economics – interdisciplinary visiting lecture

Health care systems around the world face multiple challenges that rise concerns about their present and future stability. Population aging, medical arms race and growing patients’ expectations are factors that contribute to spectacular rise in health care expenditures in virtually every developed country. Nowadays, maybe more than ever, when the economic downturn severely affects societies and governments, health care systems are exposed to growing stability risk. So, the public interest in health economic issues is also rising rapidly.

The questions that I will try to answer are:

why do economics is of crucial importance in health policy?
why do we value health so much?
what socioeconomic factors affect our health?
why does the government try to influence health-related behaviour?
how do the recessions affect our health?
what is Turkish health and health care situation comparing to other countries?

The lecture is open to the public and everyone is invited. I would recommend the lecture to all curious people who are interested in health issues and also those who are engaged in business education. I will try to broaden your perspective. Pure economics and pure health sciences often do not consider each other to be interrelated. In fact they are! Let me convince you of it.
