The willingness to pay for medical care : evidence from two developing countries by Paul Gertler( Book )
11 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 249 libraries worldwide
This book is about money - money to pay for delivering health services in developing countries. Our account is based on detailed information from two countries, C;te d'Ivoire and Peru. The feasibility and desirability of raising revenue from patients depend on the price sensitivity of the demand for medical care. There are three issues. First, how price elastic is the demand for medical care in general? Second, is the demand for medical care more or less price sensitive for some groups than for others? Finally, the desirability of expanding the utilization of medical care depends on the extent to which its use improves health. In this research we take as given the notion that medical care is efficacious. In some cases, however, quality is so low that this assumption could be suspect. The main part of this study is devoted to answering the first two questions by analyzing the choice of health care provider made by households in rural communities in two developing countries. The answers to these questions are simple: yes, the demand for medical care is price sensitive, but not so much so that user fees cannot be a viable option for resource mobilization. And yes, the poor as well as children will be hurt more by the introduction of user fees than will the population in general

Including the poor : proceedings of a symposium organized by the World Bank and the International Food Policy Research Institute by Michael Lipton( Book )

Confronting poverty in developing countries : definitions, information, and policies by Paul Glewwe( Book )
11 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 162 libraries worldwide
This paper examines several commonly used definitions of poverty. We first propose a definition based on the theory of welfare economics and contrast it with other definitions that are often used in empirical studies. We then examine household survey data from Cote d'Ivoire to see whether these different definitions choose the same people as poor. The general finding is that they often do not choose the same people. This implies that different definitions of poverty will often lead to different policy recommendations. The paper then provides a general discussion of poverty-reducing policies, and demonstrates the use of household survey data to formulate and evaluate specific policies
Private household consumption in China : a study of people's livelihood by J. van der Gaag( Book )
10 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in 3 languages and held by 135 libraries worldwide
Until recently data on the economy of China has been scarce. In this paper we take a first look at private household consumption in China, using data for 1981 and 1982 published in the Statistical Yearbooks of China. We first show current consumption patterns, make some simple extrapolations for the period 1983-2000 based on various growth scenarios, and then estimate the Extended Linear Expenditure System (ELES) for China. Income, own-price and cross-price elasticities are also presented. The analyses are preceded by historical data for the period 1949-1979
Private and public initiatives : working together for health and education by J. van der Gaag( Book )
17 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 110 libraries worldwide
The World Bank helps countries to arrive at whatever combination of public and private control is best for their particular economic circumstances. This booklet describes that work and summarizes examples of private-sector involvement in health and education provision in the developing world today. The examples also illustrate what the World Bank is doing to help bring those outside government-communities, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), private voluntary organizations, private providers, and corporations--into the design and implementation of social-service projects. Part 1 describes the historical roots of present trends--the development of modern health care systems, mass education systems--and the inequities that currently exist in health and education. The role of the World Bank in eliminating the social deficit and reducing poverty worldwide is described. The World Bank advocates using competitive markets to organize the production and distribution of goods and services and using a market-oriented approach to development. Part 2 offers examples of World Bank assistance in Kenya, Pakistan, Bolivia, India, Columbia, Burkino Faso, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Uruguay, Estonia, and Brazil. Sixteen boxes, 5 figures, and 2 tables are included. (Contains 63 references.) (Lmi)

Securing development in an unstable world by Bank Conference on Development Economics--Europe( Book )
12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 88 libraries worldwide
The Annual Bank Conference on Development Economics (ABCDE) is one of the world's best-known series of conferences for the presentation and discussion of new knowledge on development. It is an opportunity for many of the world's finest development thinkers to present their ideas. In 1999, in recognition of Europe's pivotal role in the provision of development assistance and to bring the World Bank's research on development into close contact with European perspectives, the World Bank created a distinctively European platform for debate on development issues. The seventh Annual Bank Conference on Development Economics in Europe was held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, May 23-24, 2005. The conference was co-organized by the Government of the Netherlands. The theme of the conference was "Securing Development in an Unstable World." The conference opened with remarks by Jean-Franȯis Rischard, the World Bank's Vice President for Europe, and Agnes van Ardenne-van der Hoeven, Minister for Development Cooperation, the Netherlands. Their remarks were followed by keynote addresses by Franȯis Bourguignon, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of the World Bank; Hisashi Owada, Judge, International Court of Justice, and former Vice Minister for Foreign Affairs, Japan; Gerrit Zalm, Minister of Finance, the Netherlands; and Ernesto Zedillo, former President of Mexico, and Director, Yale Center for the Study of Globalization, Yale University. Three papers-on macroeconomic vulnerability; vulnerability: a micro perspective; and health risks-were then presented

Testing for labor market duality : the private wage sector in Côte d'Ivoire by Wim P. M Vijverberg( Book )
10 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and French and held by 80 libraries worldwide
Research on labor market duality, in the context of developing countries, has identified the secondary segment of the labor market more with the self-employed than with salaried employees. A few recent tests derive information on the existence of duality and the relative magnitudes of the primary and secondary sectors entirely from the structure of the wage equation. Furthermore, as an innovation relevant to the current state of the art, this paper estimates an indicator of the degree of formality of the job that a worker holds, and integrates this indicator into the structure of the wages. The indicator is found to have some effect on the structure of the wage equation which therefore suggests the existence of duality, even though duality is measured by the indicator as a continuum, rather than as a dichotomous split. Analysis of the spread of the indicator reveals a single mode in a distribution that can be viewed as the mixture of two normal distributions. Thus, the Ivorian labor market is one with a primary and a secondary pole, and with substantial overlap between those poles so as to deny the rigorous separation that is common in discussion about labor market duality

Public and private initiatives Working together for health and education by J. van der Gaag( Book )
4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This booklet seeks to examine the change in Bank focus on lending towards an approach to economic growth via a human resources development method. The forward cites a need for a better understanding of the importance of and interconnections among two essential prerequesites for development: 1) a thriving, growing economy and public policies that make that possible, and 2) investment in people through education, health and other basic services. In response to this combination the Bank is giving high priority to helping countries respond to the challenges and opportunities before them by lending for education, health, nutrition and other aspects of human capital development. As part of these efforts, the Bank assists countries to arrive at whatever form of public/private mix is best for their particular circumstances. This booklet decribes that work with two main purposes. The first is to help redress an information gap. Many decision makers and others involved in choices about public/private roles have limited information on, or experience with, the diversity and subtleties of issues and possible solutions on what private entities can and do contribute in the health and education fields. The public side they may know well, but the private possibilities much less so. The examples presented here of different approaches from different countries and situations are meant to help correct that informational imbalance. The second purpose is to bring together recent instances of the Bank's support for health and education initiatives involving the private sector, including some where non-governmental organizations and community-based groups have played an important role. A cross-section from various regions and subsectors of human development projects, these cases indicate the breadth and new directions of strategies now emerging. Some are still in their early stages, others more advanced
