Effective mobilisation of human and financial resources in healthcare is critical for Africa’s development. In the last two decades, Africa has witnessed a dramatic increase in life expectancy at birth. This progress was possible because of improvements in healthcare delivery systems that have been implemented by governments in the continent. Human and financial capital management, including a deep understanding and commitment to their development and smart mobilisation, are at the heart of effective healthcare delivery. However, there remains a significant gap in the capacity of health systems to deliver quality healthcare to all of their citizens due to weaknesses in the mobilisation of scarce human and financial resources. In this chapter, we provide a general overview of the practice of human and money management in healthcare systems with a specific focus on the organisation of resources within the Nigerian healthcare system. The chapter also considers local and foreign sources of funding and presents a critical discussion of the implications of the diminishing role of international donor organisations. This is followed by a robust analysis of the role of technology in monitoring human resources in public health programmes, improving access to services and forecasting the demand and supply of resources. The chapter concludes by articulating new paradigms for consensus building and ensuring long-term sustainability of human and financial resources.
