    Abstract:One of the most important barriers to care is the frequent need for households to pay out-of-pocket for healthcare. These payments not only deter use of needed services, but also financially impoverish families. A range of other factors also contributes to the observed disparities in healthcare use, including the cost of treatment, distance and transport costs, and perceptions about the competency and behavior of healthcare providers. Although all play some role, their relative importance varies considerably.
