Health Accounts (HA) is an internationally standardized methodology utilized by countries to track funding flows through the health system in a given year. More specifically, Health Accounts measures how a country’s health expenditure flows from financing sources to financing agents, healthcare providers, and health functions. As the globally recognized methodology for tracking health resources, Health Accounts allows cross-comparisons with data from other countries.  Health Accounts data measure financial performance and answer key policy questions, which makes it a critical tool for policy analysis and strategic planning for: Sustainability: Is health financing too donor dependent?  Equity: Are households bearing too heavy a burden? Efficiency: Does spending favor inpatient care?
 
 
HEALTH ACCOUNTS IN TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO
The current exercise (2015) is Trinidad and Tobago’s first round of Health Accounts. Health Account studies provide insights into health spending and resource use in the health system, and the information gathered facilitates an assessment of the financial importance of key players in the health care system. HA is also an essential foundation in the planning of major health financing reforms, such as national health insurance. For Trinidad and Tobago, the HA specifically examines spending on HIV and AIDS programs since this information is critical for planning sustainable programming.
