Health financing revisited : a practitioner's guide by Pablo E Gottret( )

36 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This overview of health financing tools, policies and trends--with a particular focus on challenges facing developing countries--provides the basis for effective policy-making. Analyzing the current global environment, the book discusses health financing goals in the context of both the underlying health, demographic, social, economic, political and demographic analytics as well as the institutional realities faced by developing countries, and assesses policy options in the context of global evidence, the international aid architecture, cross-sectoral interactions, and countries' macroeconomic frameworks and overall development plans
Good practices in health financing : lessons from reforms in low and middle-income countries by Pablo E Gottret( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For humanitarian reasons and the concern for households' economic and health security, the health sector is at the center of global development policy. Developing countries and the international community are scaling up health systems to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and are improving financial protection by securing long-term support for these gains. Yet money alone cannot buy health gains or prevent impoverishment due to catastrophic medical bills; well structured, results-based financing reforms are needed. Unfortunately, glottal evidence of "successful" health financing policies that can guide the reform effort is very limited and therefore the policy debate is often driven by ideological, one-size-fits-all solutions." "Good Practices in Health Financing: Lessons from Reforms in Low- and Middle-Income Countries attempts to begin to fill the void by systematically assessing health financing reforms in nine low- and middle-income countries that have managed to expand their health financing systems to both improve health status and protect against catastrophic medical expenses. The participating countries are: Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Estonia, the Kyrgyz Republic, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Tunisia, and Vietnam. The study seeks to identify common enabling factors of their good performance. While the findings for each country are important, collectively they send a clear message to the global community that more attention is needed to define "good practice" and then to evaluate and disseminate the global evidence base."--Jacket
Innovations in health care financing : proceedings of a World Bank conference, March 10-11, 1997 by George Schieber( )

19 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains thirteen papers prepared for the World Bank Conference on Innovations in Health Care Financing, held in Washington, D.C., on March 10-11, 1997. Together these papers provide conceptual and practical policy prescriptions for financing health care systems in developing countries. Health care financing is a serious concern for these countries: they contain 84 percent of the world's population and 93 percent of its disease burden but account for just 18 percent of its income and 11 percent of global health spending. Moreover, developing countries have the capacity to raise less than 60 percent of the revenues raised by industrial countries. With 5 percent of their gross domestic products devoted to health spending, split almost evenly between public and private sources of spending, raising and managing health sector revenues are a major challenge. The papers in this volume provides an overview of the health care financing issues that are most relevant for developing countries and presents case studies illustrating their experiences with various revenue generation and management techniques

Health financing in Ghana by George Schieber( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ghana is one of only several African countries to enact legislation and earmark financing for universal health insurance coverage for its entire population. Seven years into its implementation the Ghana National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) has made significant progress in transitioning to universal coverage, but faces significant fiscal and coverage challenges. This study reviews Ghana's health financing system with a special emphasis on its National Health Insurance Scheme. Such an assessment is important because Ghana is often considered a global 'good practice' in terms of earmarking sig

Factors affecting medical services utilization : a behavioral approach [by] Terence F. Kelly [and] George J. Schieber by Terence F Kelly( Book )

6 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study describes behavioral response--both its theoretical specification and its estimation--which relates health service utilization and expenditures to a number of variables: demographic, psychological, economic, medical, and policy-related. By incorporating these behavioral relations into a recently developed microsimulation model, national and area demands for health services can be aggregated and contrasted for alternative health insurance schemes. The study uses data on individuals from the 1967 National Center for Health Statistics Interview Study and attempts to estimate the relationship between the demand for health services and various economic, demographic, and psychological factors. The study is composed of six chapters. Chapter 1 reviews the relevant health economics literature and draws inferences from this theory for use in the model. Chapter 2 describes previous quantitative demand studies which make use of microeconomic data bases. Chapter 3 describes the derivation of the theoretical context of the theoretical and empirical considerations. Chapter 4 discusses the 1967 study used as data base. In chapter 5, behavioral equations are estimated from this data base and the empirical results are discussed. Some concluding observations constitute chapter 6. (Author/JA)

Health financing in Indonesia : a reform road map by Claudia Rokx( )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Indonesia is at a critical stage in the development and modernization of its health system. The government of Indonesia has made major improvements over the past four decades, but struggles to maintain and continue to improve important health outcomes for the poor and achieve the Millennium Development Goals. Nevertheless, some key health indicators show significant progress. Infant and child (under five) mortality rates have fallen by half since the early 1990s, although the speed of the decline appears to have slowed since 2002. Maternal mortality rates show a declining trend, but remain among the highest in East Asia. Indonesia's population program is one of the worlds most successful: fertility rates have declined impressively since the 1970s and continue to fall. Previously declining malnutrition rates among young children have, however, stagnated. The slowing down of progress may be explained by a poorly functioning health system as well as by new and ongoing challenges posed by demographic, epidemiological, and nutrition transitions, which require new policy directions, a reconfigured and better performing health system, and long-term sustainable financing
