4 S UPPLY S IDE F INANCING  In Pakistan Health Care (HC) is financed through Supply Side Subsidies (SSS) that is to ensure that the entire Population has the access to “Low Priced” or “Free” Public Health Care;  Supply Side Financing has limitations in terms of efficiency and equity, it can result in inequalities in terms of access and utilization of health services;  The poor benefits less from SSS and results in seeking better quality HC in the private sector. This adds to the financial constraints of the poor. 4 RAHSTA-PPAF: PEWRH-VH P ROJECT DGK
