Medical Spending and Health Outcome in Nepal: Problems With Technology or its Distribution?- Subhash Pokhrel1 & Rainer Sauerborn1
PDF File Size: 37 KB | Download   
Nepal indicates that how a health system works in terms of fair distribution of such technologies and financing perhaps mat-ters most. Childhood mortality in many developing countries remains higher among poorer people and the gap between rich and poor has grown, which indicates not only the uneven distribution of the benefits of improved medical technologies but also the extent of the economic consequences for households in the event of childhood illness. We argue that unless a national health system addresses distributional problems, the benefits of medical technologies can never be realized fully. To justify our argu-ment, we present a small part of the results obtained from our
analysis of the 1996 data of the Nepal Living Standard Survey.
