Does civil society involvement make any difference to equity in health?
Vertical equity, that is allocating resources differently to those whose health needs are different, is the main issue in health systems. In the context of significant economic and social inequality, equity (or inequity) in health systems is primarily a matter of how health resources are distributed differently to people with different health needs. Vertical inequity may be partly a consequence of limited technical options and capacities.
