Book Review: Financing health in Latin America volume 1: household spending and impoverishment

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

In Latin America, health care is costly for the poor. More than half of the population is frequently excluded from salary-based health insurance schemes. The need to pay for health out-of-pocket continues to have a devastating and impoverishing effect on the more vulnerable. Equitable and efficient health financing is a major policy priority in most Latin-American countries.
