IHP+ has transformed into UHC2030. You can still access the old IHP+ website and resources for now, and read about the transformation process here.
Public Financial Management (PFM) is critical to achieving universal health coverage in many countries. UHC2030 has a broader scope than IHP+ that goes beyond development effectiveness and includes health systems strengthening, domestic revenue mobilization and health financing.
For a lot of countries, especially middle-income countries, development effectiveness may not be an area of priority due to their relatively lower dependence on donor support in the health sector. For these countries, upstream PFM arrangements such as budget formulation and execution, resource allocation, domestic revenue mobilization and financing may be more relevant in terms of PFM collaboration.
Collaboration on downstream FM implementation arrangements for donor-financed projects will still be relevant for low-income countries (LICs) that continue to receive significant donor support in the health sector.
Harmonizing, and ultimately aligning development partners’ financial management systems will help achieve better outcomes for health interventions in partner countries through bringing aid on budget, enhancing budget execution, reducing transaction costs, increasing fiscal transparency and oversight over the use of aid funds. It will also ensure coordinated support for strengthening countries’ capacity.
