Topic: Financing

Description: In July 1997, a group of about 25 top-level South African health policy makers and managers met for five days with a similar contingent from a number of South East Asian countries. Organised under tha auspices of the US-based Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, the main objectives of the Manila Forum were to critically examine the attainability and affordability of equity against the evidence of the South East Asian experience; and to give practical definition in the South African context, to the relevant measures/indicators, the appropriate management structures for the attainment of equity, and the fundamental question of financial sustainability.
