Reducing the burden of poor maternal, neonatal, and child health ill-health requires improvements in both the supply and use of effective maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) services. The financial costs of treatment are known globally to be a major barrier to accessing essential care, potentially imposing considerable burdens on households. To find out what was known about the scale and impact on families of out-of-pocket expenditures in accessing MNCH care in the Asia-Pacific region, this series of studies undertook a systematic review of the global and regional evidence.
The objectives of this study are to estimate the levels of public and private spending on maternal, neonatal, and child health patient care services in Bangladesh and their distribution by types of service.
