This paper analyzes the redistributive effect and progressivity associated with the current health care financing schemes in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, using data from the first Palestinian Household Health Expenditure Survey conducted in 2004. The paper goes beyond the commonly used ‘‘aggregate summary index approach’’ to apply a more detailed ‘‘disaggregate approach’’.
