Swiss TPH Based on the WHO health system performance framework, this course analyses public and private forms of health financing and payment as well as indicators to evaluate a country’s health financing structure and level. Students explore how financing agents generate revenue from various sources; pool risk effectively; create appropriate incentives for quality service provision; and allocate resources to the most effective, efficient, and equitable interventions and services. Efficiently managing these functions while minimising administrative costs, is also considered in the context of local, national and global reforms. The course starts with a distance based preparation phase and is followed from an on-campus phase and the final exam.
