Health in Liberia: Basic Diagnostic Using the 2007 CWIQ Survey
As for education, little has been written on the health system in Liberia since the start of the conflict in large part because of lack of good data. This chapter was also written in 2007 to inform the diagnostic of Liberia’s Poverty Reduction Strategy. It provides a diagnostic of Liberia’s health system as seen from the point of view of households using the new nationally representative Core Welfare Questionnaire Indicator survey implemented in 2007. The analysis covers rates of illness and injuries in the population, as well as the reasons for not seeking care, and the degree of satisfaction of households with the services received when they do seek care, in each case looking at various age groups and women and men separately, as well as at different types of facilities providing care. Data are also presented on household private spending for health, as well as on distances to facilities. A benefit incidence analysis of public spending for health is conducted, and regression analysis is used to assess the determinants of the demand for care.
