Report cover

Main content

The report describes how progress towards a global framework for health financing can be made by revising the current approach to health financing in three areas: the domestic financing of national health systems, the joint financing of global public goods for health, and the external financing of national health systems where domestic capacity is inadequate. As part of this endeavor, the report puts forward twenty concrete policy recommendations which also include several quantitative norms and targets for health financing.
