we evaluate the efficiency of expenditure in health care provision by comparing output measures (life expectancy; infant survival rate) from the health system of brazilian and oecd countries with an expenditure measure (health expenditure per capita). we estimated the efficiency frontier and country rankings by using stochastic frontiers. although the brazilian health indicators are not acceptable, our results provide some evidence that brazil is not in the worst relative position in the efficiency ranking.
