Background and Aim: Despite the economic advances and the huge achievements of researchers in healthcare fields in the past century, we have seen clear gaps in the development level of healthcare services among regions and countries and inequality in the development of health facilities. This study aimed to evaluate the inequality in the distribution of healthcare services in Sistan and Baluchistan province.
Material and Method: This is a descriptive study that its population is Sistan and Baluchistan counties, and the information that is required for ranking the counties has been extracted from the statistical yearbook of Sistan and Baluchistan province. Data were analyzed by Excel 2010 and TOPSIS Solver Software, using TOPSIS and Morris Development Index Techniques.
Results: The results showed that Zabol is the most developed county and Qasr-e Qand is in the least level of development in terms of healthcare services in the province and also there is a high inequality and gap between province counties.
Conclusion: The results of the study indicated that healthcare facilities and services in Sistan and Baluchistan province are not distributed equally and there is a large gap between the counties of the province in terms of development of healthcare services. Therefore, it is recommended to take measures to reduce the health services gap in the counties of province through development oriented planning.
Keywords: Healthcare Services, Development, Inequality, Sistan and Baluchistan, TOPSIS, Morris Index
