This discussion note re-explores the distinction between official, unofficial and informal fees to health workers and argues that unofficial and informal fees should be separated from official and formal fees. In considering these points, examples from reports about China, Bangladesh, and Central Asia/East Europe and the former Soviet Union are summarised and analysed
