Health-Seeking Behaviour in the Reform Process for Rural Households: the Case of MWEA Division, Kirinyaga District, Kenya
AbstractCost sharing resulted in a drop in the use of public health facilities in Kenya. But, these facilities continued to take a high priority among otheralternatives when sickness befell. Shifts across the facilities indicated a search for health services that yielded utility equivalent to the fee charged, while demand for services across the alternative sources reflected complementarity in consumption.
