Healthcare Financing in Belize Problem Statement

 The factors that would encourage the expansion of the National Health Insurance (NHI) Program in Belize are not clear. At this juncture, it would be useful to obtain additional information on the potential impact of strengthening the U. N. co-ordination, and the development of partnerships, for the purpose of mobilizing the resources necessary for an expansion of the National Health Insurance (NHI) Program. The research questions of the project are: (1) what are the factors that promoted or constrained innovation at the local level of healthcare delivery, and (2) how can the identified factors be used to forge a new and strengthen partnership between the Ministry of Health of Belize and UNDP Belize.
