The key issues in the privatization debate are the extent to which health and other social facilities are spatially and socially distributed. This book explores what privatization portends for the existing lopsidedness in the provision of health facilities in Nigeria, using Oyo State as spatial unit of analysis. The findings of the empirical study presented in the book are quite revealing. The study demonstates that the impact of privatization is spatially and socially regressive. The book is organized into chapters. Chapter one is aimed at putting the discussion in proper perspectives as it not only attempts to conceptualize the term "privatization", but it equally gives brief historical insight into the emergence of privatization as an explicit policy objective of the government. Each of the rest chapters opens with introduction that lays out the ideas in the chapter. Chapter two examines theoretical and conceptual issues relating to health facilities provision. Chapters three and four present the findings of the empirical study. The theoretical and policy implications of the study are highlighted in chapter five. This book will be invaluable for students in social sciences.
