Health care in the market sphere



Abstract: Nations in sub-Saharan Africa have become increasingly unable to finance the provision of health care by public funds due to problems of increasing demand for these services in the face diminishing budget allocation in real terms, decline in international assistance, and problems of managing health services in general. The wave of market oriented economic reform that is occurring in these countries is also further complicating this phenomenon. This article is a glance at the particular situation in Ethiopia with regard to the problem. Furthermore, using models of Organization theory, it is attempted to analyze the trend of health care provision in the country and come up with some suggestions that may be useful for policy related discourse.
