Community financing of health care in Africa : an evaluation of the Bamako Initiative.
The Bamako Initiative, a controversial attempt to strengthen Primary Health Care using community financing and community participation and management was launched at a meeting of African Ministers of Health in 1987.
This evaluation focuses particularly on the community financing aspects of the Initiative.
Previous experiences of community financing highlight particular lessons for the development of the Initiative and issues likely to be encountered in implementation attempts.
Four country case studies of the Initiative at its early stages of implementation (in June, July and August 1991) were conducted in Burnndi, Guinea, Kenya, and Nigeria.
Similar activities in Uganda were also studied.
