Inégalités de recours aux soins en Europe. Quel rôle attribuable aux systèmes de santé ?
This study examines the impact of health system characteristics on social inequi-ties in health care use in Europe, using data from national surveys in 13 European countries. Multilevel logistic regression models are estimated to separate the individual level determinants of generalist and specialist use from the health system level and country specific factors. The results suggest that beyond the division between public and private funding and cost-sharing arrangements in health system, the role given to the general practitioners and/or the organization of the primary care might be essential for reducing social inequities in health care utilisation.
