JLN Countries Building Costing Manual for Provider Payment

Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN) countries recognize the importance of how to pay providers for the provision of health services, but many governments struggle to establish a costing method for these services. To address this struggle, the JLN Provider Payment Mechanisms Initiative has been working with JLN countries and a Core Working Group (CWG) to establish costing methods appropriate for each country’s climate over the past couple of years.

This highlighted blog is part of a larger series sharing how JLN country members have applied knowledge from the network, improving UHC practices in their own countries through JLN tools, practical lessons, and ideas sparked by rich discussions. JLN country membership and participation has led to direct health system changes, whether by changes in integrated technology systems or in fraud and abuse in a country’s claims processes.
