Paulina Ucieklak-Jeż , Agnieszka Bem , Rafał Siedlecki , Paweł Prędkiewicz


The aim of the study is to analyse the relationship between the redistribution of infrastructural resources of a health care system at regional level, and a state of health of a population of women and men. The following hypothesis is formulated: (H1) concentration of non-financial resources is uneven between regions and increased during analysed period. We use data from The Centre of Health Information Systems (non-financial resources). Data cover a period 2008–2016 for NTS1 and 2014–2016 for NTS2. Based on the methods: Herfindahl-Hirschman Index (HHI) and Gini coefficient we confirme this hypothesis.
