Abstract

In attempt to stimulate development of public health finance as a field of practice, policy, and scholarship, this article proposes a working definition of the term “public health finance,” embeds it in the context of the maturing literature on the public health system and its infrastructure, and proposes a four-part typology that spans both public-sector and private-sector contributions to the financing of prevention and health promotion. A developmental strategy for the field-in applied research, training andeducation, and performance standards—is outlined as well.
