The Integrated Health Model is a tool, which helps country governments estimate the total resources – human, infrastructural, financial – required to meet the health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The purpose is to estimate the total costs of delivering integrated health services at scale to achieve the MDGs.
Methodology and type of data required
The Integrated Health Model consolidates and builds on several health costing tools developed by other development partners, including WHO, UNICEF, UNFPA and UNAIDS. The model’s key feature is the coherent scale-up of integrated health services anchored in a comprehensive treatment of the health system.
This model uses the unit cost approach (cost per case x number of cases).
