Abstract: National health accounts are an internationally accepted tool for collecting, cataloguing and estimating financial flows through the health system regardless of the origin or destination of funds. National health accounts provide information to improve health system performance. To date, national health accounts have been conducted in more than 60 middle-income and low-income countries. The Guide to producing national health accounts, published by WHO in collaboration with the World Bank and the United States Agency for International Development in June 2003, offers a comprehensive methodology to producing national health accounts. This short version of the guide presents the principles for producing national health accounts. It is intended for those who are new to national health accounts and who are interested in gaining a basic understanding of the concept in order to be able to initiate the process of producing national health accounts
