International Workshop on Sustainable Financing for TB Programs, including Experiences from HIV/AIDS and Malaria Programs
In April, 2013, MSH’s TB CARE I team held an international workshop in Indonesia to share experiences on sustainable financing for TB, HIV/AIDS, and malaria control programs. Facilitators and participants attended from China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Indonesia. These participants discussed health care financing through government budgets and/or insurance, the need for accurate cost data, the importance of efficient service delivery systems, and the need for evidence-based advocacy. The Indonesian National TB Control Program learned about other countries’ approaches to sustainable financing, which will help to strengthen its own strategic planning.
