Thanks to Kit Baum it is now available for download in SSC the packe -
HOI. In Stata, use the -ssc install command to install it in your

hoi computes the Human Opportunity Index proposed by Barros et al
(2008), including the Coverage of Basic Opportunities (C), the
Dissemilarity Index (D), and the Human Opportunity Index (HOI).
Analytical standard errors are reported for the C, D, and HOI. The
program also computes two decompositions of changes of the HOI: (i)
the scale and distribution decomposition proposed in Barros et al
(2008); and, (ii) the composition, equalization and scale
decomposition presented in Molinas et al, 2010 and Velez et al, 2010.
