About the course
Healthcare systems are concerned with a fair and socially just distribution of the access to and financing of healthcare, so that health outcomes are distributed equally across society. Financial implications of healthcare, however, restrict many poor households to seek healthcare on the one hand and on the other causes severe disruption in the living status of many others who go for purchasing even the bare essentials of healthcare. Equity in access to healthcare services and the related financial burden on households, hence, has been one of the major concerns of health systems particularly in developing countries. The challenges are related to reducing the financial burden of healthcare on poor households and enhance access to quality healthcare. Analytic methods of equity analysis are applied in healthcare financing to address the fundamental question that how different segments of population are protected from the financial burden of healthcare. This course teaches the latest methods of conducting equity analysis in healthcare finance.
STATA 14 software will be used for demonstration and to work on the practical exercise. The participant is expected to know basic STATA for participating in the workshop
Who should attend?
The course is designed for those who need to perform equity analysis in healthcare finance, and those who need to understand in some depth the issues that health economists face when performing these analyses. Since the course offers practical methods to conduct these analyses, researchers and commercial and academic organizations concerned with healthcare resource allocation would be benefited by developing analytical skills during the course.
