Abstract The issue of appropriate mechanisms for mobilising health care financing resources is once again high on the policy agenda of African governments. The objectives of this paper, commissioned by EQUINET, are to critically evaluate how health services are currently funded, explore recent trends in health care financing and identify lessons from the health care financing experience of African countries. It also considers the implications of this review for policy, advocacy and future research needs.
