Developing a national health financing strategy: a reference guide


The Guide is written for those responsible for, or those who advise on, the development and improvement of health financing policies. The intention is to not to prescribe a process or particular health financing arrangement, but to guide countries in developing their own HFS in a comprehensive manner that addresses main challenges of a particular country and reflects country systems. The Guide is rooted in WHO’s approach to health financing policy, which can be read in more depth in documents on our website; in this document a set of guiding principles based on our approach are outlined.
