“…It would be folly to consider any new innovation as the silver bullet to strengthening health systems. Instead we must continue to be guided by the principles of health financing and then consider new approaches. Undoubtedly taking a holistic view — technical, institutional, and political — may be more onerous to measure, but without doing so we are less likely to see sustainable, long-term change” (3/24).
