This document is based on WHO’s experience providing support on health financing policy to its Member States over many years. As a Reference Guide, it uses an outline for a health financing strategy, but its primary aim is to highlight the different aspects of health financing policy which need to be analysed and addressed by countries. Any successful health financing strategy is rooted in an analysis of current performance problems in the health sector; conducting such an analysis is the focus of a separate document, and hence this Reference Guide should be used in conjunction with it: http://www.who.int/health_financing
