Abstract


This paper aims to study the degree of efficiency of health systems in the countries of the two shores of the Mediterranean. We analyze the classification of these countries to identify particularly efficient and inefficient groups of countries. From the point of view of method, we use the estimation method (DEA). We also use a combination of inputs and outputs. In our model, we use as outputs, life expectancy at birth, survival of children under five years and adult survival rates as inputs, we chose health spending $ current, Adult literacy rates. We rely on the input orientation approach to variable returns to scale. The efficiency scores were calculated using the DEAP software (Coelli, 1996). The average efficiencies of scores (NRP) in 2010 is equal to 0.934.

Author Keywords: health, efficiency, DEA, life expectancy, health expenditure, input orientation, variable returns to scale.
