    [eng] Equity in the "Planned Competition" Model of Regulating a Health System by Maryse Gadreau and Claude Schneider-Bunner The distributive logic of European health systems (contribution depending on income and use depending on need) is indicative of the importance attached to the principle of equal access to health-care. However, reforms introducing competition are arousing interest in Europe and have been piloted in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. To what extent is equity still maintained? This paper uses a threefold typology of justice theories (egalitarian, liberal and Rawlsian) to analyse the "planned competition" model and its European pilots. The underlying conception of equity is ambiguous: all three dimensions are present, indicating the hesitations of equity policy and reflecting the pluralism of the principles in whose name the health system players are acting. [fre] L'équité dans le modèle de "concurrence organisée" pour la régulation d'un système de santé par Maryse Gadreau et Claude Schneider-Bunner La logique distributive des systèmes de santé européens (contribution selon les moyens, utilisation selon les besoins) est significative de l'importance accordée au principe d'égalité d'accès aux soins. Pourtant, des réformes introduisant la concurrence suscitent l'intérêt en Europe et ont été expérimentées au Royaume-Uni et aux Pays-Bas. Dans quelle mesure l'objectif d'équité reste-t-il atteint ? Cet article se propose d'évaluer, à l'aide d'une typologie des théories de la justice en trois pôles -égalitariste, libéral, rawlsien- le modèle de " concurrence organisée " et ses expérimentations européennes. La conception de l'équité sous-jacente est ambiguë : les trois dimensions sont présentes, témoignant des hésitations de la politique d'équité et reflétant le pluralisme des principes au nom desquels les acteurs des systèmes de santé agissent.
