Assessment of equity in healthcare financing in Fiji and Timor-Leste: a study protocol.
Bottom Line: The study employs two standard measures of equity in health financing increasingly being applied in LMICs-benefit incidence analysis (BIA) and financing incidence analysis (FIA).In Timor-Leste, the World Bank recently completed a health equity and financial protection analysis that incorporates BIA and FIA, and found that the distribution of benefits from healthcare financing is pro-rich.A user-friendly toolkit on how to analyse healthcare financing equity will be developed for use by policymakers and development partners in the region.
