How healthcare financing responses to the COVID-19 pandemic vary in different health care financing models – a comparative study of Brazil, Canada, France and Japan

About the project

This comparative study investigates healthcare financing policies and practices in healthcare service delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic. By analyzing and comparing the institutional arrangements used to fund COVID-19-related health services and sources of funding for the services in different health system contexts, this study will help inform health system policy in anticipation of future similar challenges and will contribute to the debate in countries currently undertaking healthcare financing reform for universal health coverage (UHC).
