Health financing

Diagnostics and Guidance

WHO reference guide on national health financing strategies now available in four languages


28 November 2018 - This reference guide is based on many years of WHO’s support to members states in the development of health financing policy and strategies. Rather than prescribing a particular process, or set of health financing arrangements, the guide proposes a set of guiding principles, and key issues to address, as the basis for developing a comprehensive health financing policy. The document builds on, and should be read together with, earlier guidance on conducting a diagnostic analysis of a country’s current health financing system. The document is now available in Arabic, English, French and Russian.
