Traduction en anglais : ealth care utilization patterns in developping countries: role of the technology environment in "deriving" the demand for health care.
Health care services, in combination with several intermediate (proximate) determinants of health such as environmental sanitation and nutrition, directly influence health status.
In the economics literature, tits is referred to as the health production technology.
Although many studies recognize that demand for health care depends on the health production technology, otherwise known as a « derived » demand, tits review indicates that few of them have so far been able to fully incorporate this technology in estimating significant determinants of health care use.
Understanding the technology environment could help explain why substantial potions of the population do not gain access to care even when financial factors do not appear to be a barrier.
