The willingness to pay for medical care : evidence from two developing countries by Paul Gertler( Book )
7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 252 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

Confronting poverty in developing countries : definitions, information, and policies by Paul Glewwe( Book )
9 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 155 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
