  • The elimination of user fees in Uganda: impact on utilization and catastrophic health expenditures
    2005, Ke Xu, David B Evans, Patrick Kadama, Juliet Nabyonga, Peter Ogwang Ogwal, and Ana Mylena Aguilar
    The abolition of user fees had different impacts on the poor and the non-poor. There was no clear change in either utilization or catastrophic expenditures in the non-poor. However, in the poor, utilization of public facilities increased substantially after the abolition of fees, but unexpectedly, the incidence of catastrophic expenditure did not fall. A possible explanation is that frequent unavailability of drugs at government facilities after 2001 forced patients to purchase from private pharmacies, with the extra payments for pharmaceuticals offsetting the reduction in payments for consultations.
