The Contribution of Health Economics to Health Planning Health planning is basically about choice: choice between one future or another; choice between various ways of achieving that future. Health economics is also interested in choice, so there is an obvious affinity between health economics and health planning. The growth of health expenditure and of its share in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is a phenomenon which is constantly the subject of comments and discussions among politicians, administrators and academics in many countries. One approach to this issue has been international comparisons of health by:

  The total health expenditure was % of GDP during the HES /99 (with per capita total expenditure on health at US$ average exchange rate or international dollar rate), and has increased to % of GDP in (with per capita total expenditure on health at US$ average exchange rate or international dollar rate).Cited by: The importance of planning in the health sector has become widely recognized in recent years. Planning involves deciding how resources should be allocated and determining how to implement these decisions. For developing countries, which are attempting to improve their poor levels of health with extremely limited resources, judicious health planning may be by:

Short analyses of health expenditures in representative countries related to per-capita national income, factors in hospitalization costs, and trends in expenditures in a smaller, selected group of countries. Discussion of the limitations inherent in these relatively simple data for their possible use in internation comparisons.

The international comparisons examine the relative importance of these health inputs across the country groups while country-specific studies examine the health inputs and public expenditure effects on various regions within a country.

International Comparisons. Healthcare human resource planning is an important aspect of health policy. Its importance arises in particular from the long time-delays, high-costs for training, and high proportion of healthcare expenditure allocated to it.

Many countries experience workforce shortages in the healthcare sector, especially among nursing : John Pastor Ansah, Victoria Koh, Steffen Bayer, Paul Robert Harper, David Matchar. 4 Thus, to study the factors, by considering the states as a sample unit, that determine the health expenditure can provide the valid interpretation of our discussion.

Those on Nigeria only concentrated on the effect of public expenditure on health outcome with the exceptions of yaqub () that tries to provide a link between Healthcare expenditure, health outcome. Health planning is a critical component when responding to the health needs of low and middle income countries, characterised by particularly stringent resource constraints.

The major communicable diseases such as AIDS, TB and malaria often appear in parallel with growing non-communicable diseases including heart disease and diabetes, and yet resources are. Both developing countries and those in transition struggle to meet the health needs of their populations with minimal resources available.

Planning by the public sector should enable decisions to be made, but is often poorly practised. This book provides accessible techniques to improve planning processes and puts this in the wider global context. association was found between government health expenditure and public health outcomes.
