    Expanding Health Care Coverage - Sri Lanka Case Study

    Project ID: HS-005 Status: Completed

    Recognising that several countries have demonstrated success in reforming their health systems to improve financial protection of their populations, increase resource mobilisation, and advance the goal of universal health coverage, the World Bank�s Health, Nutrition and Population (HNP) Unit in its Human Development Network designed this project to systematically evaluate and profile some of these successes. As part of this project, IHP prepared a review and evaluation of the key steps that Sri Lanka took to expand healthcare delivery and ensure equitable health services, starting from its initial beginnings in the 1930s to the current day. This work is planned to be published in late-2008 by the World Bank together with the other country studies, and be used to distil lessons for other policy-makers today.
