challenges, impeding efforts at ensuring good governance in health and throwing countries off meeting health
goals.
Discuss the principles of good governance in health, and propose ways of dealing with procurement challenges,
thereby reducing corruption in health sector of developing countries.(50marks)
QUESTION 3
Primary Health Care (PHC) has long been identified as critical in achieving universal coverage of health care
service. However, its implementation in many countries has faced practical challenges.

QUESTION 4

QUESTION 5

contesting to lead the country. As a special advisor to the new Minister for Health, identify five key challenges
the sector faces that should serve as priority issues for the Minister, proposing pragmatic solutions to the
challenges identified.
QUESTION 6
The year 2015 saw major changes in global political landscape, which have been seen posing critical challenges
to the funding health in many developing countries. Discuss four of such challenges that developing countries
face as a result of the withdrawal of Britain from European Union and a possible reduction of global health
funding from the United States government due to the promises made by the current U.S. President.
QUESTION 7
Globally, health financing has been acknowledged as a tool to achieving universal health coverage and the
global health community is using every available opportunity to promote increasing health expenditures through
various financing mechanisms. One concrete tool to enhancing financing is health insurance, which has been
embraced by many developing countries as a way to ensuring financial risk protection for, especially the poor
and vulnerable, but also to the entire population. Ghana’s National Health insurance scheme, which became
operational in 2004 currently covers about 30% of the country’s population. However, the scheme is faced with
a number of challenges which, if unresolved could undermine the objectives and sustainability of the scheme.
Discuss four of these challenges and propose practical solutions ( 50 marks)
As a health manager propose innovative ways of mobilizing local resources to improve health financing in
Ghana. In particular, how can the private sector and the health system itself (operating efficiently) help mobilize
such resources?
QUESTION 8
Discussions are ongoing in Ghana’s health sector to transfer decentralized health structures (from the district
level downwards) to the Local Government authority( Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies). This
will imply local government structures having full control over health activities and decisions at these lower
levels of health system, including the power of recruit health staff at these levels.
Discuss the advantages and challenges that such a move could pose to operation and efficiency of the health
systems components. (50marks)
QUESTION 9
Primary Health care( PHC ) has long been identified as critical in achieving universal coverage of health care
service. However, its implementation in many countries has faced practical challenges. To what extent can
health systems leaderships (from national to decentralized levels) facilitate the use of close- to- client concepts
(such as the Community based Health Planning and Services- CHPS approach in Ghana) to promote PHC in
Africa?
QUESTION 10
In recent times, there have been calls from various actors on the global health landscape for donors in national
governments in low and low- middle income countries ( L MICs) to significantly increase investment in health,
if significant improvements in health are to be observed in these countries. For example, the lancet commission
on investing in Health’s Global Health 2035 report calls for investments of up to U.S. dollars 70 billion
annually over the next 20 years, which could propel reduction of mortality levels (from infectious, maternal and
child diseases) to levels currently seen in the best performing middle income countries (China Chile, Costa
Rica and Cuba), a phenomenon they prefer to as the grand convergence. The Lancet Commission and the school
of Public Health, UG recent estimates show that Ghana and kenya require about US dollar 566 million and US
dollar 932 million (respectively) investments annually (equivalent to doubling current spending on health) to
attain the convergence. With the transition of some countries ( Ghana ,Kenya, Nigeria) to lower- middle income
status, evidence shows that donor support for health in these countries has significantly reduced, mainly due to
the transition. This phenomenon implies that governments will have to mobilize mainly local resources for
financing health.
As a health manager, propose innovative ways of mobilizing local resources to improve health financing in
Ghana. In particular, how can private sector and health system itself (operating efficiently) help mobilize such
resources. (50marks)
