Government Expenditures On Hospitals

Panfila Ching

Discipline: Economics, Business



This abridged paper studies government spending on hospitals across the thirteen regions of the Philippines. Attention is not only on the distribution of expenditures across regions but also on finding an alternative source of financing public hospital services other than relying on our overburdened tax system. The study advocates user charges where the poor is protected through a sliding scale of fees.
