Background Material:

Making the Case for Health: A Messaging Guide for Domestic Resource Mobilization was created following Domestic Resource Mobilization (DRM) collaborative member country requests for evidence-based arguments that can support communication across the health and finance sectors to make the case for investment in health. The guide has benefitted from the joint participation of health and finance policy makers in distilling and refining these messages to bridge communications in the most effective way possible.

The guide provides a set of 16 compelling messages that can be used to make the case for investment in health as a way of achieving health sector objectives, including Universal Health Coverage goals.

To resonate with finance stakeholders, key health financing topics are explained through applied macroeconomic concepts and are complemented by country experience. The guide draws on key health financing principles and functions.

DRM collaborative members’ own experiences and formative literature have been drawn on to craft each message and are highlighted in the references, which can be helpful for a deeper dive into the concepts.
