The Effect of Ownership of Health Care Systems on Distribution and Quality of Health Services
This paper investigates whether form of ownership of health facilities affects the pattern of distribution of health services, their quality and composition.

This result appears to rest more on the country's development strategy than on inherent attributes of public and private ownerships. Quality and mix of health services are also affected by type of ownership of health facilities. Bibliogr.
