Abolishing user fees for patients in West Africa: lessons for public policy (Eng/Fr)

This work is based on a dossier of five articles on the subject of health with a specific
focus on three West African countries: Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso.
The issues addressed include free healthcare, the targeted clientele,
implementation procedures, difficulties encountered and, finally, results obtained.
Responses from the research community are all the more interesting in that they
combine two types of approaches, one questioning public health policy and the other
deriving from several socio-anthropological field studies.

Exemption: an Evaluation of Public Policy" published in Afrique Contemporaine
N°243, ed De Boeck and available at: <http://www.cairn.info/revue-afrique-contemporaine-2012-3.htm> (Fr)
