Center for Health and Well-Being [Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University] Working Paper: “Quality of Primary Care in Low-Income Countries: Facts and Economics,” by Jeffrey Hammer and Jishnu Das (February 2014, .pdf format, 41p.).

Abstract:

New research on the quality of care in public and private primary care facilities has significantly enriched our understanding of how health care is delivered in low and middle-income countries. This note first summarizes recent advances in the measurement of quality, distinguishing between measurements of provider knowledge and provider effort. Second, it looks at the determinants of practice quality variation in low-income settings, highlighting the limited role of structural constraints such as infrastructure, supply of materials including drugs and, provider training-the mainstay of much of global health policy today. In contrast, practice-quality variation is clearly linked to provider effort, an aspect of provider behavior that can be altered through a variety of means. Third, it provides a broad economic framework to interpret the findings. We look for evidence of specific market failures in the provision of primary care and emphasize that the key difficulty is (and always was) the transaction-specific nature of medical advice. Providers can do ‘too much’ or ‘too little’ (or both) and the extent of the ‘too much-ness’ or the ‘too little-ness’ depends on the specific patient and the specific disease. We document specific ways in which it is difficult for both consumers and governments to monitor every transaction to detect potentially errant behavior.
