Abstract

HORTALE, Virginia Alonso; PEDROZA, Manoela  and  ROSA, Maria Luiza Garcia. Operationalizing the categories access and decentralization in health systems analysis. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.1, pp. 231-239. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2000000100024.

This paper presents a proposal for operationalization of access and decentralization in a health systems analytical model. It supports the hypothesis that decentralization of health systems fosters better access by users. This proposal is intended to contribute to a closer link between these categories and observed reality.

Keywords : Health Services Accessibility; Decentralization; Health Systems.
