  1. Financing Healthcare Services for the Poor

    To achieve universal healthcare, public healthcare spending will need to increase. But public healthcare financing is not growing fast enough to overcome the funding gap – and sometimes not growing at all. A combination of different funding mechanisms is needed to overcome the funding gap, decrease the over-reliance on out-of-pocket spending, and meet the projected increase in healthcare expenditure. IIX Foundation examines six high-potential funding mechanisms in the spectrum of healthcare financing options. Together, these form a continuum from donor-based funding, through blended and hybrid funding models with both philanthropic and market-oriented characteristics, to commercial capital markets-based models that have the potential to significantly contribute toward overcoming the current funding gap and finance a foundation for universal healthcare in the future.
