JUSTICH, Pablo R. Market-based medicine or patient-based medicine?. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2015, vol.113, n.2, pp.146-153. ISSN 0325-0075.

The health care has evolved over the centuries from a theocentric model to a model centered on man, environment and society. The process of neoliberal globalization has changed the relationship between the components of the health system and population. The active participation of organizations such as the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank by the techno-medical industrial complex tends to make the health care in a model focused on economy. This, impacts negatively on all components in the process of health care and have an adverse effect on the humanized care. The analysis of each sector in particular and their interactions shows the effects of this change. Alternatives are proposed for each sector to contribute to a model of care focused on the patient, their family and the social environment.

Keywords : Humanism; Capitalism; Health systems; Public health.
