Full Document (pdf 315.8 kb)
Experience has shown that health interventions will not reach the poorest, most at-risk groups without appropriate planning, targeting, and oversight. Thus, the fifth component of the EQUITY Framework is targeting resources and efforts to the poor. Targeting may involve implementing pro-poor financing mechanisms (such as vouchers, health insurance) or bringing services closer to the poor (such as through community-based health workers or mobile health clinics). This brief presents examples from Jharkhand, India, and Guatemala on targeting policies and programs to the poor, indigenous populations, and other underserved groups.
