ReBUILD’s work on health financing has built knowledge about the implications of different methods of financing public health systems.
The main focus of our research has been on the poverty-inducing effects of financing strategies that leave populations with high levels of out-of-pocket expenditure for their health care. This can result from using public health care or from using the alternatives (formal and informal private services), used because people do not trust the public system to provide the care they need. This body of research includes quantitative and qualitative elements and is being carried out in all four partner countries.
