Abstract

Publicly funded and provided health care systems are typically characterized by services that are free of charge, or have nominal user fees collected. This is certainly the case for a number of Former Soviet Union countries - even now - as they struggle to modernize and diversify their health care sectors. In this article we look at the evolving role of financing of services, in particular the increased reliance on out-of-pocket spending in Kazakhstan.
