Abstract

Over the last decade or so, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has emerged as a key transnational player in comparative health policy analysis despite lacking a formal mandate in this sector. The OECD plays a ‘soft power’ agenda, setting the tone for the administration of health care both in its member states and on the global health scene as well. The OECD dictates policy processes on such issues as overall health system effectiveness, incentives for cost control and clinical quality, the role of private health insurance in public-private funding mixes and remuneration for medical labour. Its work has contributed to the definition of the nature and scale of health policy problems and has indirectly influenced various national health care performance management regimes.
