Little attention has been paid to the question of how to finance the costs of scaling up MNCH care and the likely availability of funds. Methods Past health expenditure (2000 – 2005) was analysed through the National Health Accounts of 57 high priority countries. They projected likely availability of funding for the period 2006 – 2015 under two scenarios (business as usual and public commitments). We estimated the financing gap by comparing the share of projected total health expenditure dedicated to MNCH with the WHO costing model for scaling MNCH interventions.[HEFP Working paper 01/07, LSHTM, 2007]
