Health Affairs Thematic Issues

Health Affairs has devoted many of its issues to the in-depth exploration of particular policy topics. These thematic issues gather together in one place the top research, important data, and policy thinking of leaders in the field. We have found that Health Affairs' readers refer to these thematic volumes for years afterwards-using them as classroom textbooks, primers, and resource material.

Print issues are available for $37 each including shipping. To inquire about discounts on multiple issues for classroom use and educational purposes, contact us.
