dc.description.abstract In this thesis, equality is considered as the absence of differences in utilization among individuals of different socioeconomic status while equity is taken to mean that individuals in equal need of health care should use the same amount of care, irrespective of their socioeconomic status. Using the above definitions, this thesis, examines equity/inequality in the utilization of public health care in Zambia. Concentration curves, concentration indices and horizontal equity indices were used for this purpose. This thesis focuses specifically on public health care that is subsidized by the Government. It is anticipated that the findings of this thesis will broaden the knowledge base on health care utilization inequities in Africa. en_ZA
