Towards a Global Framework for Health Financing
Launch of the special issue of Health Economics, Policy and Law entitled "Towards a Global Framework for Health Financing" edited by Trygve Ottersen, David Evans, Elias Mossialos, and John-Arne Røttingen.
Universal health coverage and the UN Sustainable Development Goals are high on the global agenda, but the question is how it all can be financed. This special issue of Health Economics, Policy and Law concurrently addresses domestic financing of national health systems, joint financing of global public goods, and external financing of national health systems. On this basis, it discusses 20 recommendations for how to make progress towards a coherent global framework for health financing.
Chair: John-Arne Røttingen, Director, The Norwegian Research Council
