Health Care Financing
Health Care Financing deals with the generation, allocation and use of financial resources in the health system. Globally, it has become increasingly recognized as an area of major policy relevance to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
Understanding the country's healthcare financing system allows to recognize current finances available for health and ways to raise more funds, allocating them in way to insure equity and quality healthcare for everyone. It also helps to understand mechanisms to efficiently and equitably allocate, purchase and spend finances to improve access to health services and reduce out of pocket expenditures that lead to catastrophe and impoverishment.
