dc.description.abstractAsia and the Pacific has made unprecedented progress in addressing key health sector challenges as part of development goals, through a sustained commitment by governments, health donors, and partners. Despite this progress, remaining poverty and inequality in the region still need to be addressed. Many poor people continue to be excluded from accessing necessary health care services while others end up in poverty because of illness. Governments are responding by pursuing universal health coverage (UHC) strategies while actively managing new and emerging health sector challenges from rapid aging, the increasing prevalence of non-communicable diseases, urbanization, climate change, health security risks, and persistent communicable diseases. All these efforts are taking place in a changing health financing landscape, with grant financing from donors expected to significantly decrease as early as 2020. Traditional health donors have started to rethink grant financing given the region’s economic growth, which has set many countries on a path toward middle-income status, and declining levels of diseases such as malaria and HIV/AIDS, which are typically addressed by grant financing. In a climate of shifting health financing demands, lower amounts of disease-specific grant financing, the need to sustain UHC efforts, and new and emerging health sector challenges, governments increasingly need options and innovative instruments to catalyze country-led investments for the health sector.
