Guidelines for Analysis of Health Sector Financing in Developing Countries. Volume 8: Health Sector Financing in Developing Countries. International Health Planning Methods Series.
Robertson, Robert L.; And Others
Intended to assist Agency for International Development officers, advisors, and health officials in incorporating health planning into national plans for economic development, this eighth of ten manuals in the International Health Planning Methods series provides a methodology for conducting a study of health sector financing. It presents an action-tested procedure which may be used, with some local adaptations, to examine health sector financial resources. Chapter 1 introduces a logical, nontechnical approach to the gathering and evaluation of information on the financing of health. Chapters 2-5 guide users through the process: (1) determining the components of the health sector, (2) acquiring data on financing of the health sector, (3) evaluating the data, and (4) presenting and using the results of evaluations. (For successful completion of such an evaluation, it is anticipated that a senior-level economist or public finance specialist would be available to assist the analyst, both in initial design and final interpretation of the results.) Additional components making up approximately one-half of the manual are these appendixes: model (or suggested) tables for data collecton, a list of possible revenue sources, and a selected bibliography.
