Welcome to the WHO's Virtual Campus.


Health Financing Policy for Universal Health Coverage

This course aims to improve understanding of health financing policy, and how it can support progress towards universal health coverage (UHC). Based on WHO’s health systems framework, the different functions of health financing policy, namely revenue raising, pooling, purchasing, and benefit package design, are each discussed in detail with extensive country illustrations. After completing this course, you will have a clearer understanding of how to both analyse and develop health financing policy, the key policy decisions around each of the four functions, and an understanding of how each can support progress towards UHC. This course is considered foundational, and designed for anyone who works or has an interest in health financing policy, or health systems strengthening, particularly in low and middle income countries.
