About the course

Financial risk protection is a key goal of any health system. Mobilising adequate resources, utilizing them in an efficient way, distributing resources in a fair way and ensuring that services are delivered effectively are critical to any health system. Therefore, how much funds a nation spends on health care, who contributes to those funds, and how those resources are utilized are important questions that health systems face. Moreover, systems around the world also face several other challenges. For instance, financial implications of healthcare restrict poor households from seeking healthcare while also causing severe disruption in the living status of many others. Equity in access to healthcare services and the related financial burden on households, hence, has been one of the major concerns of health systems particularly in developing countries. Several tools are available to examine these questions and provide data for evidence-based policy-making. The National Health Accounts (NHA) is a macro tool which draws from System of Health Accounts (SHA, 2011), a derivative of System of National Accounts. Besides NHA, several analytic methods of equity analysis are often applied in healthcare financing to address the fundamental question that how different segments of population are protected from the financial burden of healthcare. This course is designed to equip middle-to-senior level functionaries in the government, for-profit and not-for-profit institutions, in day-to-day analytic functions that helps them in policy-making, planning and implementation of health care programs.

STATA 14 software will be used for demonstration and to work on the practical exercise. The participant is expected to know basic STATA for participating in the workshop.

Who should attend?

The course is designed for healthcare professionals working within government and non- government sectors and are engaged in policy design, programme impl ementation and monitoring and evaluation of such programmes in developing countries. Researchers and programme managers will benefit from this course by acquiring skills related to handling and in-depth analysis of household level data. The course is particularly designed for those who need to conduct NHA and perform equity analysis in healthcare finance, and those who need to understand in some depth the issues that health economists face when performing these analyses.
