Jowett, M., Dale, E., Griekspoor, A., Kabaniha, G., Mataria, A., Bertone, M. P. & Witter, S. (2019) Health financing policy & implementation in fragile & conflict-affected settings: A synthesis of evidence and policy recommendations. Geneva: World Health Organization, Health Financing Guidance No 7.
The motivation for the paper is to review existing health financing policy recommendations and consider whether, and if so how, these need revising given the challenging context of FCAS. The paper aims to inform policy i.e. the decisions and actions of those engaged in financing and delivering health services in FCAS, and its scope is limited to this agenda. We are particularly interested in the perspective of public policy given its central importance for the long-term development of health systems, and as such is closely linked to the humanitarian development nexus agenda, which tries to ensure better connectivity between humanitarian and development efforts as highlighted during the World Humanitarian Summit
