dc.description.abstract The health sector has a critical role to play in contributing to public health outcomes in developing countries. While acknowledging this role, financial institutions, donors and governments grapple with a number of key issues in supporting this sector. These issues include how it is important to support this sector; how to integrate critical health services, identifying the importance of health sector, and how to achieve significant scale. Over time, a number of strategies have been developed to tackle these issues and improve partnerships with the health sector. Lack of finance has been identified by both private providers and public health practitioners as a major constraint to the development of the private health sector and its ability to contribute to positive public health outcomes. This paper seeks to show the roles of financial institutions in supporting the health sector. Expanding access to finance is increasingly recognized as a useful tool in working with the health sector. This study attempted to show the roles of financial institutions in supporting the health sector in Tanzania. As a researcher it’s obvious and evidently that current products offered by most financial institutions does not meet health care providers requirements. Also from the interviews and questionnaires a number of factors have been identified as to why participation of financial institutions in supporting this sector is minimal and its growth is low. These include in access to finance, lack of business plans, improper record keeping, inadequate education and training, bureaucratic process and lack of collateral. With regard to BancABC as a case study it’s high time to call for other participants to take part and cooperate together with government and other stakeholders in order to improve our health services. By doing so Tanzania’s output will increase and eventually per capital income. The researcher really hopes that output from this study shall be of practical use to BancABC. en_US
