The decisions about distribution of medical and health resources are made at the international, national, regional, clinical and individual practitioner levels, all of which, provide opportunities for maldistribution. At the microallocation end of the spectrum are the allocation of scarce lifesaving resources between competing claimants. At the macroallocation end are decisions about the allocation of resources between competing social needs.
