    Measurement of Health Promotion and Prevention Expenditures Study

    Project ID: HA-017 Status: Completed

    Health promotion is considered to be relatively underfinanced in most countries, but is becoming particularly important as one strategy to control non-communicable diseases. Recognising the difficulty of sustaining adequate financing for health promotion and health prevention activities, WHO SEAR Office commissioned IHP and IHPP Thailand jointly to review current methods of financing health promotion in regional countries, current expenditure levels, and the opinions of policy makers and stakeholders on alternative or innovative financing approaches. The countries involved include Sri Lanka, Thailand, India, Indonesia and Nepal. Under this study IHP conducted a survey of policymakers in Sri Lanka's health sector, and prepared a report assessing trends in NCDs and risk factors in the country.
