Health financing for universal coverage

Financing long-term care programmes in health systems: with a situation assessment in selected high-, middle- and low-income countries

Discussion Paper 06/2007

Jorine Muiser and Guy Carrin


This paper explores how long-term care is financed in high- and middle-income countries and discusses possibilities for low-income countries to increase the level of funding to important programmes of this kind. The aim is to learn lessons for the benefit of countries where long-term care programmes are yet to be developed.
