In this article, Tom Achoki and Collins Chansa determine the impact of different funding scenarios on the achievement of universal health coverage (UHC) in Zambia.

A 60% annual increase in funding disbursed directly by donors would take over 9 years to achieve a similiar effect.
Achoki and Chansa conclude that funding channels do have an impact on health intervention coverage. They argue that greater harmonization of funding from multiple sources into a single framework would help accelerate towards the attainment of UHC.
