Issues in the allocation of resources in the health sector of developing countries

Issues in the allocation of resources in the health sector of developing countries

Discussion Paper, Center for Research on Economic Development, University of Michigan (67): 32

The pattern of resource allocation in the health sector of developing countries often suggests excessive distortions in the balance of expenditure, interregionally and between urban-rural areas. This reflects the reliance on a 'medical referral' system. This paper examines the theoretical rationale underlying such a system in order to appraise its efficiency and equity.
