A Toolkit for Countries Working Toward Universal Health Coverage
Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage, Results for Development (R4D), PATH, PharmAccess Foundation, 2017
A carefully developed provider payment system can be a powerful instrument for making progress toward universal health coverage. Effectively monitoring this system is an integral part of the process. Countries can draw on the collective experience presented in this toolkit to create an effective provider payment monitoring system that generates information on an ongoing basis about whether objectives are being met or unintended consequences are emerging. Six of the tools within the toolkit have been developed such that they can be modified to fit the country’s specific context.
