Since its launch in August 2016, over 6000 participants have now registered for the English language version of the WHO e-learning course on health financing for UHC. Participants from over 150 countries from all regions and all income levels are now registered. This is a course which targets participants of all levels of experience and expertise. The course is now used as preparation for those attending WHO face-to-face course on health financing, or as a review for those who wish to simply refresh their knowledge. The course is now also available in French and Russian.
WHO offers a range of training opportunities on health financing policy, including face-to-face courses and an e-learning course. An advanced annual course targeting low and middle income countries is held annually, and a number of WHO Regional Offices also offer annual health financing workshops or trainings. WHO also offers blended training or capacity building in which a series of tailored, structured and guided contacts, are designed for countries tackling a specific issue e.g. support to a technical working group in a country developing a health financing strategy.
