    MDG Indicators 2006 for ADB Developing Member Countries (DMCs)

    Project ID: EQ-001 Status: Completed

    As part of background work for its Key Indicators 2006 Report, the Asian Development Bank commissioned IHP to coordinate research teams in Sri Lanka and five other ADB member states to prepare estimates of the extent to which government health subsidies reached people living below the poverty lines in different Asian countries. This study was conducted as a second phase project of the Equitap collaboration, and has updated earlier Equitap estimates of benefit incidence of government health spending for Sri Lanka (2003/2004), Indonesia (2004) and Nepal (2002/2003) by using the most recent household survey datasets. In addition, the first Equitap estimates for Viet Nam (2001/2002) and Mongolia (2002/2003) were also produced. For all the countries, a full analysis of incidence, including concentration indices and other indicators have been computed. The results for Mongolia are the first benefit incidence estimates for health spending in that country. IHP expects to publish the results in 2007 as an Equitap Working Paper.
