Financing Community Health Programs for Scale and Sustainability [Self-paced]

***THIS IS THE SELF-PACED TRACK***

The Financing Community Health Programs for Scale and Sustainability course series presents an in-depth exploration of the financing value chain needed to understand resource needs as well as to mobilize resources for community health. The series aims to engage learners with insights from stakeholders within Ministries of Health (MOH), Ministries of Finance (MOF), global health institutions, private sector organizations, and academia, supported by examples demonstrating how different financing approaches have been implemented in practice. 

By the end of this series, learners will be able to:

  • Know the definition and core functions of health financing
  • Have an in-depth understanding of the financing pathway needed to mobilize resources for community health, including, but not limited to: costing community health programs, developing investment cases, mapping key stakeholders, and growing funding options.

A successful course series will equip learners with the resources and tools needed to actualize the financing pathway for their contexts. This will ensure that community health programs are successfully launched, adequately resourced, and financially sustained.
