Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
In the era of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have observed that the development of health economics and governance has become a core issue in countries around the world. In this regard, the share of health expenditure in national income is increasing. The financing methods of these expenditures, including health care financing, health insurance, and government deficits, are all research hotspots. This Special Issue focuses on macro- and microeconomics related to the health economy, as well as health economic evaluation, health service research, and health policy analysis. Relevant research topics are the personal and institutional aspects of health care management and the growing importance of health care in developing countries.
