Over past few years, India is witnessing a progressive liberalization in health insurance sector which is leading to multiple options for domestic as well multinationals to do business in India. With public expenditure remaining stagnant and indifferent to meet the demands of 300 million growing middle class population of India, private sector is mushrooming fast. Out of pocket expenditure forms backbone for healthcare in India. Its contribution comes to around 68% of total healthcare expenditure. According to World Health Organization, it is estimated that only 3% of India's population is covered under some form of voluntary health insurance. This paves way for huge untapped market for health insurance in India. This work can provide descriptive baseline study in health insurance in India and should be useful for professional in similar field as well as healthcare stakeholders across the globe.

Scientific Study from the year 2012 in the subject Health Science, grade: "-", University of Colombo (Ministry of Health), course: MSc(Ex.Mgt), language: English, abstract: Sri Lanka is one of the few countries with free health concept in the world. It stands for universal health care for each citizen. Consequently the government should carry a substantial responsibility to provide health care facilities for all citizens.According to the statistical data and the sense of community a disparity of total health expenditure and public health expenditure could be observed. It is nearly 50% gap in between total health expenditure and public health expenditure. This situation may create problems in healthcare services especially ineffective health plan resulting difficulties in maintaining health standards and resolving challenges in health. Studying on this conflict and interpretation of real health situation is vital for provision of sustainable healthcare service. Aim of this study to develop a social dialogue on current situation of health and evaluate its sustainability. Research was carried out using primary data collected from the community. Findings of primary data indicated inadequate facilities in the state hospitals. Seventy two percent of admitted patients were requested some drugs and laboratory test to be out sourced. It could be found every citizen spends at least less than 1000 rupees monthly for their health needs, even in low income levels in the community....

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Economy - Health Economics, grade: 1,30, University of Kassel (Institut für Volkswirtschaftslehre), course: Social Policy, language: English, abstract: In international comparison, Germany ranks 4th among OECD countries in health expenditure as a share of GDP in 2011. It amounted 11.3% of GDP in 2011 which is 2%-points above the OECD average of 9.3%. Only the United States (17.7%), the Netherlands (11.9%) and France (11.6%) are spending more on health. In addition, German health expenditure increased, in real terms, at a rate of circa 2% p.a. on average in 2000-2010, but slowed down to 1.1% in 2011. However, expenditure continues to grow. With regard to these figures, health care is one of the most important sectors in Germany. With more than 6 million employees and a gross value added of almost € 268 bn in 2013, it represents 11% of the German economy. While expenditure is on the rise, the number of contributors who finance the health care system decreases. As a result, the question of how to finance the growing demand for health services occurs. In particular, a closer look at the statutory health insurance (SHI) is necessary as it financed 57% of total health expenditure in 2011. Since the report "Achieving financial sustainability for the social security systems" by the Rürup-Commission, two major reform proposals are discussed: the citizens' insurance ("Bürgerversicherung"), a universal system of health ...

Essay from the year 2013 in the subject Economics - Case Scenarios, grade: "none", , course: PhD, language: English, abstract: Abstract: To reduce inequality in income distribution and reduce the poverty social welfare spending in Thailand particularly on education and health services is regarded as one of the effective instruments. Policy makers agree that public subsidies on education and health produce positive externalities and have spill over effect in the society. This research is designed to analyse the effects of public spending of education and health on income distribution which examine the pre-expenditure and post-expenditure income distribution in Thailand. It follows the benefit incidence analysis (BIA) that is a method of computing the distribution of public expenditure across different demographic groups, such as women and men. The procedure involves allocating per unit public subsidies (for example, expenditure per student for the education sector) according to individual utilization rates of public services. This paper aims at examine who are the real beneficiaries from the government expenditure. The study uses the quantitative method where data are used of 2010. From the benefit incidence analysis on the public expenditure on education it seems that education system is pro-poor and health care system are not pro-poor rather pro-rich. The poor people can be benefited more from the primary and secondary education and less benefited from the tertiary e...

India has experienced rapid urbanization in the past decades. Urban population of the country has increased from 62 million in 1951 to 286 million in 2001. Rapid urbanization is associated with better socioeconomic and health conditions in urban than rural areas due to increased opportunity of education & employment and improved health infrastructures within the cities. On the contrary, the rapid growing urbanizations is characterized as typically overcrowded, polluted, lack basic services such as clean water and sanitation and exposed to infectious diseases. Along with unhygienic and health threatening surroundings, irregular use of recommended health practices, high cost of health facility and accessibility make the health of urban poor vulnerable. But, existing health programme such as National Rural Health Mission is directed to improvement of health and health care in rural India and overlook the urban poor who may enjoy little or no health advantage over their rural counterparts. Considering the need this study pointed out the health and health care vulnerability among urban poor of India over past 13 years.

Scientific Study from the year 2014 in the subject Economics - Case Scenarios, Wollega University (Department of Economics), language: English, abstract: This study has examined the impact of foreign aid on government expenditure in Ethiopia over the period 1981 to 2012 using Multivariate Vector Auto Regression analysis. All the necessary time series tests such as stationary test, co-integration, weak exiguity, and other tests are conducted. The empirical result from the long run fungibility equation result indicates that sectoral aid has negative effect on its sector spending in developmental sectors except for agricultural sector government spending. The estimate of agricultural aid also support that a 1percent increase in agricultural aid leads to a 0.83percent increase in agricultural spending. Aid other than health aid also has positive impact on health spending. The positive coefficient of aid other than the health implies that there is an aid diversion towards health sector from the others. The negative coefficients of sectoral aid on the sector spending and the negative coefficients of aid other than sector-specific aid, indicate diversion of aid away from the specific sector. Negative coefficients of explanatory variables may arise when there is a diversion of categorical aid from developmental investment towards non developmental expenditure such as general service government expenditures. The result also shows education aid is fungible both in short and long run. H...

Seventy percent of the global burden of mental disorders is located in low and middle income countries (LMIC),including sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). However, in Africa,only 0.62% of the national health budget is allocated to mental health compared to a global median of 2.8% and 5% in Europe. The government is the source of funding in 62%of patients with severe mental disorder in the World Health Organisation (WHO), Africa Region, the lowest of all the WHO regions, and lower compared to a global median of 79%. This is compounded by poor resources, with mental health outpatient facilities in WHO Africa Region being less that 10% of the global median. To address these problems, the WHO launched its Mental Health Action Gap Programme (mhGAP) in 2008, to scale-up mental health services in low and middle income countries (LMIC). The book is directed to all policy makers in sub-Saharan Africa to aid decision making about the urgent need for sustainable and relevant mental health care strategies, and the important areas that need priority. The book should be helpful to local and international researchers in formulating research questions relevant to the African continent and it will be of interest to medical practitioners and students in the region as adjunct to standard text books.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Miscellaneous, grade: Very Good, , course: Master's Thesis, language: English, abstract: Decentralization refers to division of multidimensional power between the center and sub national governments. Fiscal decentralization is core component of decentralization that gives an autonomous authority to local governments a revenue and expenditure assignments. Though fiscal decentralization has given revenue raising and spending decision powers to lower levels of government, the implementation process has often been a discouraging task for many local authorities in the developing world. In the case of Ethiopia, decentralization has been implemented since 1991. However, vertical as well as horizontal fiscal imbalance still persists at different layers of government. Therefore the core objective of this paper is to assess the causes and consequences of fiscal imbalance in Tigray, focus on Wukro & Maichew. In order to collect the required data, both primary and secondary sources are used. In addition with this, the research also applies qualitative approach and using case study design. Accordingly, at region level, the region only covers 29% of its total expenditure in the last six years. In line with this, Wukro and Maichew Wereda are among the Weredas in Tigray which faces the problem of fiscal imbalance. While Wukro Wereda covers 14.5% of its total expenditure from internal reve...

This study addresses the question how income affects health care utilization by the population aged 50 and over in the United States and a number of European countries with varying health care systems. The probabilities that individuals receive several medical services (visits to general practitioner, specialist, dentist, inpatient, or outpatient services) are analyzed separately using probit models. In addition to controls for income and demographic characteristics, controls for health status (both subjective and objective measures of health) are used. We analyze how the relationship between income and health care utilization varies across countries and relate these cross country differences to characteristics of the health care system, i. e., per capita total and public expenditure on health care, gate-keeping for specialist care, and copayments.

"If God cannot save me and my village from my enemy's attack, I will make idols and worship them." An anonymous vilager (Manipur, India) The introduction of Christianity by missionaries in North-East India, without ignoring the positive contribution, failed to provide a sound theological foundation for the people of this region in their quest for identity and liberation. In this publication, the author, a native of the region, investigates the struggle for identity among the tribal people of North-East India and more particularly the Kuki people of Manipur. Exploring the social, cultural, religious and political changes brought to the people of this region the book highlights their real struggle for justice and dignity. Outlining aspects of the Kuki tradition, as well as dialoguing with Dalit and tribal theology the author proposes possible contributions to a local theology that can help in shaping a new sense of identity for the tribal people of North-East India.

The biodiversity has been particularly investigated in the context of designing efficient programs of monitoring biodiversity and setting out conservation priorities The Global Biodiversity Assessment recommends that such assessment requires a detailed knowledge of species distribution in particular landscapes. India's Biological Diversity Act 2002 aims to promote conservation, sustainable use and equitable sharing of benefits of India's biodiversity resources. In this context, traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) and its implication in the field of ethnobiology is of special focus in view of its grim scenario due to the diverse environmental perturbations. Therefore, specific emphasis should be given to ethno-medicinal plants while setting priorities for biodiversity conservation in India. Etnomedicines, derived from plants, enjoy a respectable position today, especially in the developing countries, where modern health service is limited. Safe, effective and inexpensive indigenous remedies are gaining popularity among the people of both urban and rural areas of India. Moreover, the role of medicinal plants in Human health is mentioned.

The data was analyzed using SPSS to establish the linkages between environmental deterioration and human health in the two districts. The results clearly suggest that environmental degradation seriously affects human health in the two districts. 80% of the ...

With significant cost advantages, availability of quality medical treatment with the most-advanced medical technology coupled with India's well-known tourist destinations and rich cultural heritage,medical tourism does provide a motive sufficient enough to allure those foreign patients who either want to avoid the long waiting list for medical treatment in the West or, in absence of any health insurance coverage, seek lower cost treatment. India's strength in advanced and life saving healthcare such as organ transplants, cardio-vascular surgery,etc, as well as in alternative systems of medicine(i.e. ayurveda, naturopathy,etc) offer significant competitive advantages.

However, several malpractices and frauds in the midst of stiff market competition adversely affect the consumers. This paper thus aims at highlighting the issues concerning the Indian pharmaceutical industry and its undesirable impacts on consumers.

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Near East, Near Orient, grade: 1, University of Salzburg (Fachbereich für Politikwissenschaft und Soziologie), language: English, abstract: In line with its new foreign policy after the end of the Cold War India started to significantly increase its political, economic and military relations with Southeast Asia at the beginning of the 1990ies. Since then, but particularly for the last ten years this so-called „Look East Policy" has grown to a strong and multifaceted partnership that constitutes a major component of Indian foreign policy today. The principal purpose of this thesis is to evaluate India's motives for its strong interactions with Southeast Asia. The most common approach among academics to explain India's Look East Policy follows a liberal understanding of International Relations. Liberals argue that both, India and the Southeast Asian countries want to exploit complementarities in their economic and social structures: This thesis however, follows a neorealist understanding of International Relations by arguing that the Look East Policy is primarily a strategy of the Indian government to counterbalance the growing Chinese influence in Southeast Asia: Due to the geographic closeness of the Asia Pacific region to the Indian subcontinent, China's presence there is particularly worrisome for India. It thus aligns with the Southeast Asian states in order to...

Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Politics - Basics and General, grade: 1,0, Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel, language: English, abstract: The aim of this paper is to study the relationship between globalization, government expenditure and credible commitments of the government. Moreover, the hypothesis that states increase social spending to build support for increasing economic openness was tested. The study is deeply grounded in an extensive literature on the research works in the related area and on compensation hypothesis, efficiency hypothesis, and credible commitment hypothesis. An empirical analysis of economic and social data of twenty-three OECD countries was performed for the period between 1960 and 2013 to test the hypothesis. The hypothesis, more government expenditure leads to greater globalization was not rejected. Hence, it was proved by empirical investigation that more social expenditure leads to more economic openness.

Oral health holds the key to general health in many aspects. However, it is one component about which there is very little awareness and little clear understanding of the implications. In view of the adverse effects of poor oral health, it is important to take preventive measures and create the required services. To achieve this purpose a baseline data is necessary to be created so that such data will help us plan and formulate programmes and implement them to improve oral health of the community. Indian sub continent having 970 million population with substantial proportion of children, should concentrate to improve the dental health of the future generation in younger age, with the help of the most resourceful health-man power, the school teachers in turn helping them to maintain their own.

Health services provision remain an essential part of the responsibilities of governments throughout the world in view of the vital role good health plays in economic development. However, in the developing world, the public sector (government) is no longer able to solely provide sustainable basic infrastructure, including health services in response to the rapidly growing demand due to increasing population growth and weak economies. This book used the Upper East Region of Ghana as a case study to examine the contribution of the Catholic Church (a not-for-profit health care provider) to improving access to health care delivery in rural communities. The research used secondary and primary data sources which produced results indicating the immense health care delivery gap being filled by the Catholic Church in rural Ghana. It outlined several dimensions of health care access and identified public-private partnerships as a viable policy for governments to adopt for improved access to health care. This book is useful to government and nongovernmental actors in rural health delivery, persons in academia or anyone with an interest in Church-State partnerships in rural health delivery.

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, grade: 80%, Ewha Womans University (Graduate School of International Studies), course: International Studies, language: English, abstract: ABSTRACTStructural Adjustment Programmes (SAPs) of the IMF (IMF) and World Bank (WB) were implemented as part of aid conditionality in Africa and Latin America since the 1980s. There is a wide range of literature critical of SAPs. Several debates have focused on whether the failure of SAPs was a result of the inherent weaknesses of the IMF/ WB sponsored structural adjustment or whether it was caused by structural failures of policy implementation within the African continent. The author uses the Zimbabwean case to analyze the impact of SAPs on social service sectors, particularly the public health sector. This paper provides a case where the Zimbabwean health sector demonstrated significant progress in public health delivery, and showed prospects of further improvements before the implementation of structural adjustment between 1990 and 2000. In this thesis I show that cost recovery systems and reduced public expenditure on health led to rising costs of health services and increased inequalities in health service provision. It also resulted in the abandonment of critical public health programmes and consequently contributed to poor funding for health infrastructure, maintenance, drugs and equipments. Furthermore, retrenchm...

In our contemporary world, the urban areas are categorized as slum and non-slum areas mainly on the basis of structural quality of housing and sanitation. The living environment in the slum areas are unhealthy. Similarly, the sanitation facilities are also not good as compared to non-slum areas. This book explores the living condition in slum a and non-slum areas and attempts a comparative analysis of both areas of India. It not only provides a comparative picture of living environments of slum and non-slum area but, also compares distinct morbidity in both areas of India. It is unique in the sense that no study of such type has been conducted so far taking all major cities of India. The study finds that prevalence of different diseases among women and children is high in comparatively small cities.

Project Report from the year 2017 in the subject Biology - Micro- and Molecular Biology, grade: 5, , language: English, abstract: Arsenic contamination of groundwater has remained a critical open issue in numerous world areas, especially in Uttar Pradesh in India, in light of its intense and ceaseless harmfulness and cancer-causing properties. In 1993, the World Health Organization set an arsenic permissible level of 10ug/L in its drinking water rules. Practical procedures to expel arsenic from ground water must be produced to make water fit for drinking. Previous studies have shown that this region of India is characterized by extensive As pollution of rivers and ground waters by both geologic and anthropogenic activities. The various other states, including, Jharkhand and Bihar are at biggest risk, because of the flood plain of the Ganga River. In many foods a trace amount of arsenic is essential for good health. However, the excess of this element causes cellular damage in biological system, like gastrointestinal and respiratory disorder. Skin, liver and bladder cancer. Both inorganic arsenate As and arsenite As exist together in natural environment. Arsenite is more toxic than arsenate. As frequently prevails as 74 to 98% of aggregate arsenic. Arsenic is harder to evacuate than As. Utilizing ordinary methods, for example, precipitation, adsorption, particle trade and layer filtration and coagulation were used to remove arsenic from contaminated waters. All these methods a...

Scientific Study from the year 2012 in the subject Medicine - Epidemiology, Universiti Brunei Darussalam (Department of Geography and Development, and Environmental Studies), language: English, abstract: Cholera in the Littoral Region of Cameroon, precisely in the city of Douala has become not just a public health crisis but a humanitarian disaster as well. Recently, contrary to the announcement made by the Ministry of Public Health that no case of cholera had been recorded, 23,000 people have contracted cholera and 843 died of the disease in the region between 2010 and 2012 . This study, therefore, establishes the following: 1). Contrary to popular belief that in a cholera endemic setting the greatest burden is in the younger age groups, in the case of Douala, during the 2010, 2011 and 2012 epidemiological periods, the young adult and adult age groups are the most vulnerable; and males are far more vulnerable than females; 2). Cholera risk factors such as slum settlements, lack of proper social amenities and services, for example, potable water; drainage; waste collection; hygiene and sanitation facilities, are generally spread throughout the Littoral Region and Douala in particular, though characterized by glaring unevenness; 3). Social characteristics not generally considered in public health strategies, including: attitudes towards hygiene and sanitation; limited knowledge of diseases/cholera transmission mechanisms, as well as magico-religious beliefs on the origins of c...

Mental health is an integral component of health that helps a person to realize his or her own relational abilities using the psychomotor, affective and cognitive domains. A high prevalence of mental disorders is seen in old age and predominant among these is depression. The community-based mental health studies have revealed that the point prevalence of depressive disorders among the geriatric population in India varies between 13 and 25 per cent. Another common mental health problem of the elderly is dementia. The total prevalence of dementia rises sharply above age 75. Individuals with dementia have reduced survival. The prevalence of cognitive impairment has been estimated between 11% (cognitive impairment- no dementia: ages 65-74) and 98% (memory impairment on at least one objective test). The financial burden including medications, care giving and institutional care; increases with the severity. This book explores the mental health status of the elderly Indian population. It also evaluates the National Mental Health Programme in India and identifies the scope of improvement in the mental health care delivery systems for the elderly.

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Sociology - Individual, Groups, Society, grade: Excellent, , course: MSc. in Development Economics, language: English, abstract: In developing countries like Ethiopia, our day-to-day formal and informal discourses are rarely out of poverty issues that can be linked directly or indirectly. Despite the determined effort of government and development agencies to reduce poverty and ensure sustainable development, poverty remains an everlasting challenge of the world. This study aims to examine rural household poverty and its determining factors using alternative poverty measurement approaches, in case of Gozamin Woreda, East Gojjam Zone of Amhara Region. It used both objective and subjective based poverty analysis approaches, where the survey based analysis and PPA of the study depend on randomly selected 242 and 42 sample households respectively. Using cost of basic needs approach (CBN), the poverty line of the study area is estimated as 19.16 Birr per day per adult equivalent. The study engaged Foster, Greer and Thorbecke (FGT) group of poverty measures to assess the incidence, depth and intensity of poverty and decompositions were made across sample Kebeles and socio-economic variables. OLS, logit and censored (Tobit) regression models were also applied to identify determining factors of household consumption expenditure, poverty incidence, depth and severity. PPA findings revealed that, perception of the community towards ...

Master's Thesis from the year 2005 in the subject Sociology - Political Sociology, Majorities, Minorities, grade: A (Excellent), University of Dalarna (European Political Sociology), 60 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The provision of welfare is a defining characteristic of the states in Europe, as well as the target of various reform efforts. Within the European welfare states, health care is embedded as a public affair and despite slight variations, the majority of European states guarantees most of the cost of using health services to almost all of their citizens (OECD 1992; 1994). As health care is among the most personal issues, it is also among the most politically discussed. During the 1990s, reforms were introduced in the health care sector in many European countries with the common goal to make existing health care systems more cost efficient and gain greater control over how public resources were spent within them (Mossialos/Le Grand 1999). However, expenditure cuts with regard to the health care system are politically delicate.

The scope of this report is broad as it incorporates the case studies of five major players in Indian healthcare tourism sector. It has been observed that Healthcare Tourism and Medical Tourism are interchangeable terms. In general, there are two main causes (developed countries' increasing cost of healthcare services and their overburdened healthcare infrastructure) that have resulted in enhancing the demand for healthcare tourism. Medical Malpractices Insurance is the major for increasing the healthcare cost in developed countries. Commonly, medical malpractice insurance is considered as major aspect for increasing the cost of medical treatment, widening the delay in the waitlist and also enhancing the movement of medical professionals from one region to another. India has competitive edge in the healthcare tourism because of certain characteristics: healthcare professional availability, low-cost medical treatment, enhancing popularity of its traditional wellness systems and country's existing reputation for treat of relatively advance healthcare segments (such as organ transplant, cardio-vascular surgery and eye surgery/ By reviewing all the case studies, it has ...

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2015 in the subject Economy - Health Economics, Tongji University (Sino-Germany College), language: English, abstract: This paper uses basic educational and health-related factors as antecedents for life expectancy at birth on country level. Life expectancy is a highly complicated construct and varies strongly with respect to national borders. Aiming to provide a prediction model, prognoses are based on health expenditure per capita, HIV prevalence, immunization rates and literacy rates and justify cross-national dissimilarities in expected lifetime in a simple manner. The model helps to estimate the importance of the used antecedents among each other and gives a basic understanding on how life expectancy could potentially be influenced. Due to the usage of basic antecedents, the highlighted potential will be of special interest for developing countries.

This work aims to analyze the impact of final expenditure components on import demand in Pakistan. Studying Import demand behaviour is important in economic literature because it has vast implications in tackling the problem of trade deficit faced by most of the developing and less developed countries of the world. It is more than just theoretical debate because it contains a rigorous empirical analysis by using the modern econometric techniques. Although it is a case study of developing South Asian country, Pakistan, yet the inference drawn may also be helpful for the policy makers of other developing countries facing the same situation. This information may also be useful for efficient utilization of both expenditure switching and expenditure dampening policies to overcome the above mentioned problem of trade deficit. This work is also helpful in providing directions for industrial policy.

Childhood pneumonia is still the major killer of Bangladeshi children. This study aims to determine how much money a family has to bear for each episode of childhood hospitalization of pneumonia in two tertiary level paediatric hospitals in Dhaka. It was documented that household had to spend substantial amount of out of pocket money to get the basic care during hospitalization. 71% of the household had to borrow money as a coping strategy. The rural households borrowed more and paid more than the urban households for hospitalization. A trend was found that as the family becomes more economically solvent, the proportional burden due to healthcare expenditure relatively decreases. The study found that in both the facilities the percentage of male children were more than 75% which reflects the cultural negligence towards female children. This unaffordable financial burden can result in the 'distress sale' of property, delay or abandonment of treatment, sacrifice expenditures on food and education and thus the basic needs of the family members are compromised.

As a region with abundant resources and rapidly growing transit potential surrounded by nuclear-armed powers, Central Asia is increasingly drawing the attention of global players. Russia is actively seeking to rebuild its economic influence via the newly created Eurasian Economic Union. China is expanding its reach through a recently launched Silk Road Economic Belt. Other actors are jockeying for their share of the region's pie, as well. But the United States and India are enjoying only very limited presence in what is increasingly becoming a critical part of the world. In this comprehensive and insightful account, Mr. Roman Muzalevsky, an author of a book and several monographs on global trends, great power politics, grand strategy, and connectivity issues, explains why India lags behind other actors in the region and what needs to be done to unlock its potential as a rising great power and shore up its strategic presence in Central Asia.

India is one of the first country who developing relation with the European Union. The EU is India's largest trading partner accounting one-fifth share in both export and import. Several agreements have been signed between the EU and India in the past few years, resulting in even more imports and exports, both of goods and services. This book analyses the trade relations between India and the European Union during 1990 to 2005. Chronology of Indo-EU trade since 1990 and different agreements to boost bilateral trade have been analysed in detail in this book, the comparison between India and EU, concerned to economy, currency, foreign trade etc. In conclusion there is no need for India to feel intimidated by the magnitude of the single market or its importance in world trade. Outside the developed world, India will remain one of the world's two or three largest and still expanding imports markets.

Master's Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: 1 (A), Wollega University (wollega University), course: Development Economics, language: English, abstract: This study attempts to investigate the effect of government expenditure on private investment in Ethiopia over the period 1980-2012. The central question of this study is weather government expenditure has a positive or crowding in effect (complementary hypothesis) or a negative or crowding out effect (the substitutability hypothesis )on private investment in Ethiopia. To achieve its objective it adopted a modified flexible accelerator model to enlighten on the economic relationship between private investment and the other variables and used the modern technique of vector auto regressive model (VAR) and vector error correction model(VECM)as its methodology. The study also used the Johansen-Juselius (1990) cointegration analysis of a multivariate system of equation to estimate the long run relationship between government expenditure and private investment to determine the order of integration of the variable and Granger-Causality test was undertaken to determine causal relationship between the variables. In addition to this the study employs the Augmented Dicky-Fuller (ADF) unit root test and phillip perron test. The statistical tests reveal that all-time series data are non-stationary in their level and they become stationary after diffrencing.i.e.they are integrated of order one I(1).The ...

Thilo Klein Why Do India's Urban Poor Choose to Go Private?. Health Policy Simulations in Slums of Hyderabad

2877 руб.
Why does a large proportion of India's urban poor choose to pay for private health services when public services are essentially free of charge? Drawing from previous research, this study takes the underprovision of the medication component in public health packages as a starting point. Field evidence shows that patients in public health facilities often have to get external medication, whereas private hospitals offer a menu of pre-specified care packages. Thilo Klein contributes an answer as to why the poor choose to go private by investigating their risk-aversion and demand for insurance in the choice of health facilities. In discrete choice experiments on maternity care in the slums of Hyderabad, the author finds that the lowest income group attaches significantly higher importance to "full medication" maternity care packages. In line with Expected Utility theory, the study further finds empirical evidence that this insurance demand of the poor is partially explained by their risk-aversion. The findings suggest that an effective pro-poor policy should provide insurance cover for medication-related expenses. They have significant implications for the provision of public health care to the poor and are important for policy-makers and health management alike.
