dc.description.abstract This study assesses the impact of out-of-pocket payments for health care on the welfare of households in Uganda. Using data from the nationally representative Uganda National Household Survey 2009/10, the study assesses the extent and intensity of catastrophic out-of-pocket health care payments using a threshold that varies with household's socio-economic status. The study also assesses the impact of out-of-pocket payments on the poverty status of the population. en_ZA
