Most countries are concerned with the efficiency of health services delivery. Despite the level of resources devoted to hospitals and the health sector, there is a growing gap between available and required resources. This gap has led many countries to explore ways to generate additional revenue resources for their hospitals and health systems. However, there is need for effective management of the costs of operating hospitals to reduce wastage. WHO estimated that wastage accounts for as much as 40 per cent of the available resources for health services in the Americas (Parker and Newbrander, 1993). A study in Malawi estimated that simple management correction of inefficient practices and costing could result in a savings of 44 % of that nation's major hospital non-personnel recurrent costs. Adequate cost information can help set accurate prices, increase revenue and enable hospitals to achieve service delivery objectives.
