Analysis of Botswana’s health financing structure

Health financing remains one of the top issues among policymakers and continues to lead in public discourse as countries implement health systems reforms to achieve equity in health and universal health coverage. In this peer reviewed article, the authors analyse the health financing structure of Botswana in relation to the health financing sub-function framework with a particular focus on the strengths and weaknesses of the country’s health financing  arrangements. The evidence shows that Botswana is committed to health financing through huge public spending on health while also increasing private sector contributions. However, the existing health financing model still faces a lot of challenges. Among them include inequality, inefficiency, fragmentation and uncertainty in the sustainability of the government funding.
