Financing and sustainability - Key Policy Issues

Financing is at the heart of enabling actions that make scaling up the education of health professionals feasible (Frenk, et al., 2010:35). With regard to financing,  policy-makers need to address several key issues:

  1. how much education changes will cost and how much the country can afford;
  2. sources of funding;
  3. where to allocate the funds; and
  4. how to ensure a flow of funds to make scaling up sustainable.
