Emerging from the discussion in this chapter (i.e. on the health structure and policies), it can be said that in order for the objective of 'health for 211' to be achieved, the government will have to integrate health into the overall socio-economic development and match it up with action. Since it is evident that non public health providers are an important source of treatment in the country, the government need to closely co-ordinate this sector and have it integrated into its health-care system. Addi tionally, the Ministry of Health should undertake to understand the reasons why planning priorities are not being translated adequately into budgetary estimates and actual expenditures. For this purpose a system for the planning and implementation of resource allocations in conformity with health policy is required. The next chapter looks at the various sources of health finance and where it is spent.
