Strengthened understanding and knowledge of key health financing concepts and challenges of national level community and civil society actors through training. The training provided a robust overview of the health financing landscape and budget-making processes. An average of 20 civil society representatives attended these in-country sessions, which means that approximately 400 CSOs have been trained. Beyond the trained 400 CSOs, there will be a ripple effect across civil society coalitions, networks and organisations, all working towards more effective advocacy.

Joyce Laykah Kilikpo
Public health practitioner, Public Health Initiative, Liberia

I am interested in this course because , I know that in my country Liberia no one should have to decide between seeking health and buying food and as such we need to improve financial sustainability of the health sector if we are to address the catastrophic out of pocket health expenditure and ensure universal health coverage for all. I believe that we need to establish a more reliable and predictable financing mechanisms for health through a national health insurance scheme and tax reforms, improving efficiency, and using limited resources as effectively as possible. Thus this course will give me the knowledge , skills and network to support my country in addressing this key health policy area – health financing reform.

Hendry Peter Samky
Public Health Specialist, The Benjamin William Mkapa Foundation

“Health Financing has undertaken major reforms in low and middle income countries due to progressive decrease in donor contribution towards health budget of the respective countries including Tanzania. This has called the government and society to thrive towards universal health coverage in order to ensure equity in health service access by all citizens.
Therefore participating in the ToT course will enrich my skills and knowledge towards UHC approaches and how they can be applied in my country. This is an opportunity for diversification of knowledge and enriches the approaches and strategies to promote quality health service access for all in my country.
Furthermore, this training will open up the opportunities to learn from other African countries especially those doing well in UHC and transfer lessons to my country while also sharing with other countries.

Endale Erko Kenea
Public Health, Addis Ababa Regional Health Bureau

A very fast-growing population, poverty, very huge disease burden, emerging health problems, frequent epidemics and often very poor infrastructure and lack of responsive health system are among the challenges for the HCF and overall health budgeting. Besides these, a weak health care financing reforms, donor dependent budgeting and poor understanding of the HCF reform implementation are major concerns that I believe need attention.
In this regard, I interested to review and understand the global concepts of health care financing, experiences of various regions of the world and want to support my country’s health system by providing capacity building trainings, integrate my previous knowledge and experience of evidence synthesis to conduct various reviews regarding HCF and avail evidences for decision makers on HCF. Above all, I want to use this opportunity to develop my professional views through this training process and contribute to this area of knowledge.
