CENTRE FOR HEALTH ECONOMICS AND DEVELOPEMNT Conclusion All these will be used in measuring access in terms of utilization not merely adequacy of supply. Services available must be relevant and effective if the population is to 'gain access to satisfactory health outcomes'. The availability of services, and barriers to access, have to be considered in the context of the differing perspectives, health needs and material and cultural settings of diverse groups in society. Equity of access may be measured in terms of the availability, utilization or outcomes of services.
