Health financing reforms in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh extended coverage to more than 70 million people living below the poverty line.
ACCESS Health International identifies good practices in health financing in low, middle, and high income countries. We work with public and private healthcare finance programs at both the state and national levels to speed the transition to universal health coverage. Many governments are currently reforming healthcare systems to provide universal coverage at an affordable cost. ACCESS Health provides research and advisory services to public and private healthcare providers to assist in the design and implementation of cost effective financing practices. We design and support practitioner to practitioner learning programs to support evidence based reforms.

The structure of healthcare finance directly influences the behavior of healthcare providers and the quality of outcomes. By supporting strategic health financing reforms and policy implementation, our work in health financing aligns financial and nonfinancial incentives to ensure high quality health services are affordable and available when needed. Our programs in healthcare finance within India are broad and deep, as are our relations with a group of African and Asian countries that share improvements in healthcare finance as part of the Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage.

ACCESS Health Philippines connects national policymakers, local governments, and healthcare providers to assist in providing universal health coverage.

The Philippine national government sponsors health insurance for those with low income through the National Health Insurance Program. The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, PhilHealth, is a government owned corporation attached to the Department of Health that manages the National Health Insurance Program. The mandate of PhilHealth is to provide health insurance coverage to all Filipinos. Since inception, PhilHealth has continued to expand benefit packages to cover catastrophic health expenses and underserved populations. PhilHealth now works with both public and private providers to deliver key healthcare services. ACCESS Health Philippines works closely with PhilHealth to assist with the design of new programs, especially those directed to improve maternal child health and primary care. ACCESS Health also plans to support the implementation of national health programs in local government settings.

One of the main responsibilities of ACCESS Health in health financing in the Philippines is to facilitate interaction between policymakers and practitioners managing health financing reforms in the Philippines with those in other countries. ACCESS Health does this through the Joint Learning Network.

Singapore ranks sixth in the world in health outcomes yet spends less on healthcare than any other high income country, measured both as a fraction of the GDP spent on health and as expenditure per person. ACCESS Health Singapore studies the health financing planning process and approach of the government in order to understand how Singapore pays for high quality healthcare at a cost the economy can afford. We also share this knowledge with other governments looking to design or reform their own health financing strategies.
