Financing Alliance for HealthThe aspiration of the Financing Alliance is to provide significant support to governments to leverage the existing funds better and to mobilize new funding for strong and effective health systems.
Despite strong evidence for invests in community health systems in Sub-Saharan Africa, a $4 billion+ funding gap persists. Furthermore, current donor funding supports mostly vertical, disease-specific Community Health Worker (CHW) programs that are costlier and less efficient than horizontal, integrated programs. National governments that seek to streamline and scale CHW programs face significant barriers including building political prioritization, developing policies, mapping resources, and establishing financing strategies. As a result, Ministry of Health teams often struggle to mobilize resources and scale robust, sustainable community health systems, with community health workers at their core.
FAH is working towards a new reality where domestic and international funders prioritize community health as a key contributor to achieving Universal Health Coverage and recognition of community health as a critical investment rather than a cost that burdens individual members of the society.
