A critical interpretive synthesis of informal payments in maternal health care
Informal payments for healthcare are widely acknowledged as undercutting health care access, but empirical research is somewhat limited. In a new article in Health Policy and Planning, Marta Schaaf (former Deputy Director of AMDD) and Stephanie Topp summarize the evidence base on informal payments in maternal health care and critically interrogate the paradigms that are used to describe informal payments. The article is available here via open access.
