Determinants Of Health And Their Implication On Social Policy In Romania
The health and the economic situation of a population are closely linked. The causality of their relation has been focus of various papers along the years. Consequently, the aim of the current paper is to underpin the most important factors that could improve the health of Romanian people. By using appropriate proxies for all the relevant constructs a series of models are constructed. Their main purpose is to better inform policy making in order to achieve a better health status of the population, hence a better economic situation of the country. The article considers innovating ways to measure health (new cases of illnesses reported by family doctors) and pays a special attention to mental health. The results point out a preventive approach to health care in Romania. Its implementation would bring about a wide range of benefits from both an economic and a social perspective.
