Georgia Health Utilization and Expenditure Survey

The Health Utilisation and Expenditure Survey (HUES) was conducted in May/June 2007 and consisted of a nationally representative sample of 3,218 households.

The objectives of the survey were: to estimate household health expenditure and compare this with the Integrated Household Survey (IHS) estimates to provide adjustment factors; to provide information on reported health status, use of services and user satisfaction; and to provide a baseline for reforms in primary health care and sector financing, both nationally and for specific ‘pilot’ regions where additional support is being provided. A second round of the HUES is planned for 2009 and will provide follow-up information in each area.
