Aligning public financial management and health financing: sustaining progress toward universal health coverage

The paper considers how public financial management (PFM) and health financing systems can be better aligned in support of universal health coverage (UHC). It provides a framework for examining common challenges and offers strategies for addressing those challenges. A companion process guide builds on the framework to help health and finance authorities at the country level engage in productive dialogue, assess alignment between a country’s PFM system and health financing system, and work toward a joint policy roadmap to improve alignment.
