Jul 2012 – P4H scoping mission warns against further fragmentation

P4H scoping mission warns against further fragmentation

Jul 2012 – A joint P4H scoping mission comprising WHO, ILO, the European Union and France (AFD) takes place between 2-6 July, 2012 in Ouagadougou. After consultation with different stakeholders involved in various health financing systems in Burkina Faso, the mission participates in a regular meeting of the Burkina Faso Steering Committee of the national universal health insurance project in charge of validating the five feasibility reports (see below for details).

Despite a 14% share of general government expenditure being allocated to health, the health financing system in Burkina is highly fragmented, and there is a risk that the national health insurance scheme will just add another layer to the system without addressing the main challenges related to the resource pooling or health services purchasing functions.

One of the main recommendations of the P4H partners is for the Government to stick to the universal approach adopted in the national health insurance scheme (targeting all categories of the population with both contributory and non-contributory sources of funding) and to draft a comprehensive health financing strategy for universal coverage to provide a clear basis for the national health financing architecture and its gradual evolution.
