Jacob Novignon (), Solomon Olakojo () and Justice Nonvignon ()

Health Economics Review, 2012, vol. 2, issue 1, 1-8

Abstract: The findings imply that health care expenditure remains a crucial component of health status improvement in sub-Saharan African countries. Increasing health care expenditure will be a significant step in achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Further, policy makers need to establish effective public-private partnership in allocating health care expenditures. Copyright Novignon et al.; licensee Springer. 2012
