Onehealth tool is a software application developed to support countries to estimate the resource requirements for a comprehensive and integrated national health strategic plan. The tool allows users to project health sector needs for years into the future, plan budgets, plan for numbers needed of specific health care providers, plan the number of units and costs of pharmaceuticals that will be needed, identify where bottlenecks are likely to occur in the projection and planning, interventions to apply to problems, and various other mapping tools for any selected country. It is thus primarily intended to inform sector wide national strategic health plans and policies.
