This chapter discusses the financing aspect of health-care planning. It outlines the pressures that have led to the current interest in health-care financing, and argues that country-specific analysis of these pressures needs to be undertaken by planners as a basis for policy formulation. Criteria for assessing funding mechanisms are introduced, and the major alternatives for financing health care are described. Recent developments in the way in which external support is provided are discussed.

Keywords:   health-care planning, health-care finance, health-care policy, country-specific analysis
