Abstract: Singapore's degree of governmental intervention into health policy can be seen as intermediate between the bureaucratic & market strategies delineated by R. R. Alford (Health Care Politics, Ideological & Interest Group Barriers to Reform, Chicago: U of Chicago Press, 1975). In this approach, the government takes a quite tolerant if not directly encouraging view of the various forms of traditional medicine of the several important ethnic groups in the country. To some extent the approach represents a solution to the shortage of qualified medical personnel. Modified HA.
