Video Podcasts: Leveraging Public Financial Management for Better Health


Learning about key public financial management topics including budget formulation, execution, and accountability.


For countries looking to initiate or strengthen their public financial management systems, these video podcasts provide successful examples of how countries around the world have addressed and overcome key PFM challenges.


In 2019, WHO organized a webinar series of public financial management (PFM) in health issues. The series included six sessions on key PFM topics – from budget formulation, to budget execution and monitoring  – and involved a range of well-established experts from WHO, World Bank, OECD, International Budget Partnership and Results for Development, as well as country experts from health and finance authorities. The webinar series was successfully followed by 500 registrants working on country health system and financing. In 2020, WHO made the recorded sessions of the webinar series available for the public. With the permission of the different contributors, the files have been transformed into 30 minute-video podcasts covering six PFM topics. Watch all the video podcasts here
