The need for priority setting in health care requires that health programmes be adequately evaluated. Currently there is no consensus as to what characteristic of health programmes should be of primary concern. Capability, the ability to achieve valuable beings and doings, represents one alternative. The appropriateness of the capability approach depends, in part, on its distributional implications. The objective of this study, is to examine whether these implications can be assessed, and if so, what they are.
