Equity in Health in Latin America and the Caribbean: Methods and Results from Jamaica

Adam Wagstaff and Eddy van Doorslaer, March 19, 1998

The seminar covered a series of health equity studies then being conducted in five countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, using methods developed by Adam Wagstaff and Eddy van Doorslaer in their earlier work on health equity in Europe. The methods produced estimates for the degree of inequality prevailing with respect to both health status and health service use. Preliminary findings from Jamaica were presented in order to illustrate the methods’ application and preliminary findings.
