This paper recommends that for realistically addressing issues of fragmentation it is necessary to undertake coordinated mainstreaming of various CGH elements across a multitude of agencies involved in their provision and financing is essential to avoid direct conflicts. The health policy community needs to look beyond the Ministry of Health to ensure broader state capacity reforms that improve foundational processes (such as human resources, procurement, finance, and budgeting). It also suggests that given the multi-sectoral nature of CGH, the health sector budget cannot be equated to the MoH budget. Effective health policy making requires an outcome-oriented budgeting process that looks across the government to enable cross-cutting investments that all contribute to the provision of CGH. It is a useful paper for policy makers. Click here to read the paper.
