E-drug: New Publications from MSH
---------------------------------------------
Announcing two new publications from Management Sciences for Health!

1) Ensuring Equal Access to Health Services: User Fee Systems and the
    Poor

This book examines user fee systems in five countries (Kenya, Guinea,
Tanzania, Ecuador, and Indonesia) and synthesizes the findings to
make recommendations for policy experts and decision-makers. 
Audiences for this book include teachers and students of international
public health, managers of health programs in developing countries,
donors financing health care activities, health economists, and
health policymakers seeking to make new or existing user fee systems
more equitable.

2) User Fees for Health Services: Guidelines for Protecting the Poor

Health policymakers and program managers in both the public and 
private sectors will find this book useful for designing and 
implementing financing mechanisms that protect the poor and ensure 
equity. The
guide helps policymakers and program managers to consider what 
information they need if they plan to introduce user fees. It 
addresses
important issues such as: What is the role of user fees in funding
health services? When are special mechanisms necessary to protect the
poor? What types of mechanisms are available, and how effective and
costly are they?
