Poverty, development, and health policy by Brian Abel-Smith( Book )

16 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in 4 languages and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written for senior health administrators and teachers of health personnel in developing countries, the purpose of this book is 2-fold: 1) to show the role that the senior health administrator can plan in reorienting national planning in the directions indicated by the World Health Assembly; and 2) to show some of the implications for the planning and administration of health services. Discussion focuses on health policy and national planning (the inequity of past development, health and development, economic growth and national planning, and planning national health policy); and 2) the economics of health services (the analysis of health service expenditure, the financing of health services, cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analyses, and low cost services). In that poverty is a major cause of low health standards, the health administrator needs to participate in plans to combat poverty and to identify those aspects of poverty that are of special importance for the health of the population. The health administrator will be concerned about any aspect of a national plan that may have an unfavorable effect on health standards. If the health administrator is to fully participate in national planning, he or she requires some knowledge of economic reasoning and of the economic concepts used in planning. The plan for health services must form part of the larger plan for use of the entire nation's resources. Tools of economic analysis can be used to find ways of achieving health service objectives with less use of resources or of achieving better results from the same quantity of resources

Planning the finances of the health sector : a manual for developing countries by E. P Mach( Book )

9 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many countries, particularly those in the developing world, are seeking to orient their health services toward a more equitable and efficient utilization of resources. A detailed analysis of the financing of health services is an important step in such an undertaking. This manual sets out a methodology for carrying out such an analysis and suggests ways of collecting and organizing data on areas of expenditure and sources of finance. It also suggests how this information might be utilized in policy formulation--to make a master plan for the future use of all financial and material resources. The book pays particular attention to primary health care in view of its high priority in current health policies. A series of tables provided in this publication presents models that provide an analytical framework for national planning, and summary tables have been devised for the use of policymakers. Chapter 1 contains the introduction; chapter 2 offers definitions. The third chapter discusses study objectives, and chapter 4 outlines steps for planning a study. Chapter 5 describes data collection, and chapter 6 talks about primary health care. In chapter 7, alternatives are evaluated and examined, and chapter 8 discusses projections of future expenditure and sources of finance. (JMK)
