International Bank for Reconstruction and Development / The World Bank, 2014
The World Bank has implemented health financing activities in 68 countries. Health financing interventions are found in about 40 percent of the Bank’s Health, Nutrition, and Population portfolio. Most projects include interventions on revenue collection from public sources. Almost half of the projects support public health insurance and automatic coverage. More recently, results-based financing (RBF) operations became more prominent. The International Finance Corporation (IFC) delivered a small program in health financing.
