Bhatia, Mrigesh, Rannan-Eliya, Ravi, Somanathan, Aparnaa, Huq, Mohammed N., Pande, Badri Raj and Chuluunzagd, Batbayar (2009) Public views of health system issues in four Asian countries. Health Affairs, 28 (4). pp. 1067-1077. ISSN 0278-2715
To elicit the public’s views on health system issues, we conducted an opinion poll survey in Bangladesh, Mongolia, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. We focused on health inequalities. The results show high levels of dissatisfaction with government health services in all four of the countries. Access to government health services was an important concern. A sizable number of respondents reported that their governments did not consider their views at all in shaping health care services. The policy implications of the study findings are discussed. Respondents complain that those running their health systems do not solicit citizens’ input or consider their views when making decisions.
