Health Sector Evaluation: 1995-2005

Nov 2006
This report (RE-324) presents an evaluation of the conceptual and empirical basis of the key reform measures promoted by the Bank in its health sector interventions between 1995 and 2005. These measures depict the approach followed by the Bank to confront the problems of the sector. In this sense, the projects themselves, and the health sector reforms implemented by the countries during this period, are not evaluated individually or in isolation, but discussed in their relationship to such approach. Since the approach followed by the Bank through its projects were related to the pursuit of three main objectives, improvement in efficiency, quality and equity or coverage, this report assesses the likelihood in which they have contributed to the achievement of such goals.
