  • Mô tả: The 1993 World Bank's annual World Development Report is likely to upset doctors, or rather the grander sort of physician who ends up as head of a large teaching hospital or as a health minister. The report, which concentrates on health, reckons that the most cost-effective treatments are rarely delivered by specialized hospitals, but by clinics, district hospitals, and, above all, in schools. Developing countries spent only 4% of their GDP on health - an average of $41 a person, compared with $1,900 per person in the rich world. These huge sums are rarely spent effectively or fairly. The bank identifies 4 problems: 1. misallocation, 2. inequity, 3. inefficiency, and 4. cost explosion. The World Bank's prescription for developing-country health care starts at home. What people do with their lives affects their health far more than anything governments can do, but what people do is greatly influenced by their income and education. The bank urges that government health spending should be targeted carefully. One obvious way is to redirect funds away from those costly central hospitals, but the bank also suggests 2 basic packages - one of public-health measures and one of clinical services.
