The health care system worldwide is facing a critical paradigmatic crisis. The cost of care is skyrocketing, while delivery is increasingly inequitable. Reforms have been generally concerned with managerial options and financial measures—questions of implementation and methods to contain or divert costs while providing heightened efficiency. Rarely has the dominance of a model underpinning the present health care system’s emphasis on cure, with its dependence on costly hospital infrastructure, high technology and pharmaceuticals been questioned. I intend to provide a comprehensive discussion regarding these critical global issues, with an aim to explore the potential for alternative responses in the health field.

Keywords: Health Crisis, Health Reforms, Alternative Health Responses, Health and New Paradigms
