Summary/Abstract: The most commonly used indicators of health status (e.g. life expectancy) generally measure only the average values, without taking into account the variability between sub-populations. The aim of the research is to examine the level of inequality in the distribution of the financial burden during the process of funds’ collection and inaccess to benefits and health effects in the population.
