  1. User fees plus quality equals improved access to health care : results of a field experiment in Cameroon.

    Article - En anglais

    Since the Bamako Initiative was launched in 1988, many African countries have embarked on comprehensive primary health care programs relying, at least partially, on revenues generated through user fees to revitalize health care delivery systems.

    Although these programs contain two critical components, user fees and improved quality, policy debates have tended to focus on the former and disregarded the latter.

    The purpose of this study is to provide a net assessment of these two components by testing how user fees and improved quality affect health facility utilization among the overall population and specifically among the poorest people.
