Oxford University Press. The goal of the POLICY Project is to create supportive policy environments for family planning and reproductive health programs through the promotion of a participatory policy process and population policies that respond to client needs. Issues of reproductive health finance are central to policy and operational decisions regarding the provision of reproductive health services to clients. POLICY undertook this review to inform policymakers and program planners interested in reproductive health cost information about the availability of information for different services, in various settings, and in different countries. This review is not an evaluation of the quality of the cost methodologies used and does not attempt to provide guidelines for future costing studies.

Author(s):  Carlos Cuéllar
Date of Publication: January 12, 2000

This paper focuses on a resource mobilization strategy, which aims to transfer part of the burden of health services from public funds to the users via existing private/non-governmental structures. The paper illustrates how PROSALUD, a Bolivian NGO, has effectively expanded the access, quality and coverage of health services to low income communities by mobilizing community resources. Through an integrated, client-centered approach, PROSALUD delivers a sustainable, low cost, primary health care based services to under served communities, and complements Bolivian Government efforts to reform the health sector.
