Chapter 34 Equity in health care finance and delivery

Adam Wagstaff and Eddy Van Doorslaer ()

Chapter 34 in Handbook of Health Economics, 2000, vol. 1, pp 1803-1862 from Elsevier

Abstract: The paper surveys the economics literature on equity in health care financing and delivery. The focus is, for the most part, on empirical work, especially that involving international and temporal comparisons. There is, however, some discussion of the concept and definition of equity. The empirical sections cover the literature on equity in health care financing (progressivity and horizontal equity of health care financing arrangements), equity in health care delivery (horizontal equity in the sense of treating persons in equal need similarly), and equality of health.
