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