''Valuing health services using benefit transfer: Cross-subsidization of cataract surgeries in Ethiopia''
( 2022, Vol. 42 No.4 )
The employment of manual small incision cataract surgeries has dramatically increased the number of surgeries. However, poverty and the associated lack of access have resulted in a persistent underprovision of cataract surgeries in Ethiopia. Cross-subsidization has the potential as a self-sustaining mechanism to increase service uptake of cataract surgeries. To measure the feasibility of cross-subsidization of cataract surgeries in Ethiopia, we use benefit transfer analysis to find the estimated mean cross-subsidization margins ranging from $10 to $37 per surgery.
