In this article, we provide a summary of the theoretical explorations that our research has invited us into. The need for such a multi-layered literature review stems from our depiction of the theoretical limitations of contemporary urban planning studies that focus on the experiences of Türkiye in the face of complicated urban problems, among which urban health care challenges stand out. By considering urban health care as a form of social infrastructure along the lines of efficiency, accessibility, design, and sustainability of social rights, contemporary urban planning studies still make use of mainstream social scientific lenses. We suggest an alternative analytical toolkit, namely the analytics of government drawn on the Governmentality Perspective as one of the prospective ways to go beyond such limited analysis.
