  1. Marginal analysis in practice : an alternative to needs assessment for contracting health care. Commentary.

    Article - En anglais

    Prioritising health care services on the basis of total needs can lead to inefficient use of resources.

    A better option is to determine priorities by marginal analysis, which examines the effects of altering the existing balance of expenditure between health care programmes.

    Resources to support investment are released from disinvestments-that is, the strategy is resource neutral.

    Thus an increase in total health benefits is achieved independent of any gains that may result from increased spending on health.
