    Bethesda, Maryland, Abt Associates, Partners for Health Reform Plus, 2006 Jul. [45] p. (USAID Contract No. HRN-C-00-00-00019-00; USAID Development Experience Clearinghouse DocID / Order No. PN-ADH-035)

    This National Health Accounts study estimates current national reproductive health (RH) spending in Jordan in order to accurately predict what additional funding will be needed to meet Millennium Development Goals and the national priorities set in the Reproductive Health Action Plan (RHAP). The RH subanalysis was conducted using solely secondary data from the public and private sectors. Overall RH expenditures total 91.6 million JD (or US$129.4 million), which represents 15 percent of total health expenditures (THE) and 1.5 percent of the gross domestic product. RH expenditures per woman of reproductive age are 70 JD (or US$99.53) and out-of-pocket spending by women of reproductive age equals 28.08 JD (or US$39.10). Fifty-seven percent of RH financing comes from the private sector, 38 percent from the government, and 5 percent from donors. Donor spending on RH accounts for 16 percent of all donor health spending and household spending for RH is approximately 15 percent of all household health spending. Providers of RH services are mainly the public sector (45 percent of RH THE), followed by the private sector (37 percent of RH THE). Medical (curative) care accounts for 83 percent of RH resources, pharmaceuticals for 15 percent. Maternal health spending consumes 48 percent of all RH expenditures, with deliveries and antenatal and postnatal expenditures contributing 24 percent each. Family planning expenditures are on pharmaceuticals (4 percent) and outpatient care (8 percent). Other RH expenditures are on inpatient care (23 percent), pharmaceuticals (11 percent), and outpatient care (5 percent). A very small amount goes to RH-related programs for prevention and public health (0.5 percent of RH total health expenditure). Subanalysis results have three key policy implications: the share of public financing in the total resource envelope for RH services is low, expenditure on family planning is low, and the quality of care administered in the public sector facilities is perceived to be lower than quality in private facilities.
