Summary
Egalitarian concepts of fairness in health care payments (requiring that payments be linked to ability to pay) are compared with minimum standards approaches (requiring that payments not exceed a prescribed share of prepayment income or not drive households into poverty). The arguments and methods are illustrated using data and out-of-pocket health spending in Vietnam in 1993 and 1998.
