The Health Finance and Governance Project (HFG), funded by USAID, was asked by to work with Partners in Health and its sister organization in Haiti, Zanmi Lasante, (PIH/ZL) to conduct a costing study of the recently opened Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais (HUM). The objective of the study is to provide data and information that will support the development of a financial sustainability plan for HUM.
The primary objective of this analysis is to analyze HUM’s cost structure and to estimate unit costs in order to inform the development of the hospital’s budgeting, management, and planning systems; this is critical as HUM moves strategically towards a long-term financing strategy aligned with national health financing priorities to ensure the long-term viability of the HUM model in Haiti’s public health sector.Download
