The international political economy of global universal health coverage

Descrição: 
Trabalho apresentado no Primeiro Simpósio Global de Sistemas de Saúde, realizado de 16-19 novembro de 2010 em Montreux, na Suíça.  Autores: Gorik Ooms ; Rachel Hammonds ; Wim Van Damme.If universal health coverage can be described as a limited set of options to finance essential health goods (“appropriate promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health care”) to make them affordable to all, little research has been done about how international health financing can best be linked with national health financing to attain this goal. Universal health coverage is—often implicitly—viewed as a strategy to make international health financing redundant. For example, the consortium on social health protection in developing countries of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ), the International Labour Office (ILO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), mentions that “[i]n the long term, all schemes should become as financially independent of external funding as possible”. If international health assistance is intended to be temporary then its integration with national universal health coverage efforts would imply the failure of both: international health financing would become open-ended and universal health coverage would not achieve its implicit goal of ending dependence on external funding.
