The way funds flow through a health care system is one of the most important determinants of the system’s ability to meet its goals of sustainability, access, equity, quality and cost effectiveness. We will look first at some of the different ways that funds have been collected and pooled to create national health insurance programs and the issues that have arisen in the process. Since few systems can be totally dependent on health insurance for their funding, we will then hear about innovative approaches to combining different sources of public and private financing to influence the availability and organization of health care services.

Following the discussion of health care financing, panel sessions will address the mixed experience of countries in their attempts to use purchasing policies to influence the cost and utilization of hospital and primary care services. Following these four panel sessions, conferees have a choice of two sessions to top off their examination of financing issues. The first session will be a case study of a country whose experience illustrates the many com-ponents to be addressed and integrated when attempting to change the rules of the financing system. The second session is a discussion of the benefits and pitfalls of market-based health care and strategies to address the lessons learned. Among the topics discussed will be the need to legislate and effectively enforce new governance principles.
