Assessing the use and cost of healthcare services and catastrophic expenditures in Enugu and Anambra states, Nigeria

Abstract

This research sought to fill gaps in the information currently available on what health services are being accessed in Enugu and Anambra states. It explored whether public or private services were being used, the financing incidence (based on socioeconomic group and rural-urban location) of out-ofpocket spending and the incidence of catastrophic healthcare payments. It is hoped that the information in this policy brief will help guide decision makers in their efforts to protect the poor from over burdensome and damaging healthcare expenditures.
