|Financing and sustainability|
Most CHBC programmes rely on some payment by the ill person and family. However, this payment should be kept within people's ability to pay, and out-of pocket payments should not contribute to increasing the poverty of ill people and families. CHBC team members may be asked to assess whether ill people and family members can afford this payment.
