dc.description.abstract The incidence of catastrophic and impoverishing levels of out-of-pocket expenditures for health are high in comparison to other countries in the region. One common approach to overcome this barrier is to provide free health services. The Government of Bangladesh has adopted such an approach by making available Maternal, Neonatal and Child Health (MNCH) services through Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) facilities for free or at a nominal cost. However, in practice, government care is not free for most patients, and there is a high incidence of out-of-pocket payments associated with visits to government facilities, especially by mothers and children. en
