Arizona: Why Health Policies Should Be Transnational: A Case for East Asia Pacific Countries

Mr. Preshit Ambade, a doctoral candidate in public health policy and management at the University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health and colleagues, argue that health policies should transcend national boundaries yet should not reach the supranational level.

The article was published in the International Journal of Risk & Safety in Medicine on July 26.

Along with multinational global health efforts, such cross-national health policies are essential to leverage joint efforts by countries learning from their peers that experience similar health system challenges. In the analysis, the researchers used World Bank Health, Nutrition, and Population (HNP) data from 1995 to 2014 for East Asia Pacific (EAP) countries to explore health system comparability across member nations.

The findings present transnational health policy recommendations for the EAP region based on the use of robust methodology and the resulting comparative clusters.
