This study examines the impact of public expenditures in the sector of education and maternal and child health in household level in Chad. The results show that there exist a very strong social selectivity in the utilisation and transfer of health and education in Chad. The analysis reveals that an expansion in sanitary and educative transfer could may not profit the more underprivileged and that it is going to be like this if this expansion is not accompanied by reforms on the distribution of these resources between the decentralized structures on one side and the usage which is made of these resources to a decentralised level. In addition to this enormous contrast observed at the level of regions, of northern and southern zones in terms of accessibility to education and health services and their quality, the study reveals a weak tie between the means and the results: sign of failure in the management of these priority sectors. A truly centralised management on these results can constitute a plausible alternative, especially in the context of the SNRP and the OMD.
