âHealth is a fundamental human right as well as a central input to poverty reduction and socioeconomic development. A greater investment in health is envisaged to save millions of lives in most developing countries and has the potential to produce enormous economic gains. Cost-effective interventions for controlling major diseases exist, but it is perceived that the existing financial and human resource gaps and limited district level managerial capacity are hampering the efforts to extend essential health services to the poorâ Impact of âPay for Performanceâ on Utilization of Health Services and Quality of Care in Low and Middle Income Countries Zafar M.
Health services can be called as a collaboration of health care professionals and health monitoring committees to bring effective health care to the common population. Main aim of health service societies is to improve individual health by diagnosing and treating the diseases. Health services are mainly provided to the rural populations who lack better facilities for maintenance and restoration of health. Providing health services includes input of money, efficient health professionals, medicines, equipments which can all make an effective health care delivery system. Health care services aims for the equality of health, improvement of health service access as well as quality of human health. Health services include palliative care services, rehabilitation services, immunization programmes, antenatal care, prevention of epidemics etc. Equality in Health care delivery without suffering financial hardships is one of the best advantages of health delivery services.
