An Introduction to Health Planning for Developing Health Systems

This chapter discusses the different approaches to planning. It begins by examining three models of planning: comprehensive rationalism, mixed scanning, and incrementalism. Although none of these is likely to be desirable (or indeed feasible) in its pure form, each throws light on different ways of approaching planning. In practice these models are inevitably combined. The chapter outlines one such combination, and introduces the various stages in the planning process, which are further explored in later chapters. Finally, the chapter looks at some of the differences between planning for a single organization and the broader role of planning in the public sector and its relationship to policy and management.
