Makale özeti ve diğer detaylar.
This paper aims to lay bare healthcare inequality and spatial interaction in health services in Turkey for the period 1997–2006. While inequality was explored using Theil index, Moran I and LISA ststistics were used in order to reveal spatial interaction. The obtained results indicate that both intra-regional and inter-regional inequality decreased during the mentioned time period. Furthermore, it was determined that the inequality concerning the specialist physician group is higher than the practitioner and total practitioner groups. Also, there is evidence of significant spatial clustering for all three physician groups.
