Abstract

 Introduction: DONATIONs are one of the resources for financing healthcare. As charities do not always work according to the objectives of health systems, numerous problems develop. This study aimed to identify charities engaged in the health sector of Kerman Province (Iran) and to describe their management, their interactions with other parts of the health system, and their problems and challenges.Method: In the present qualitative study, six charities were identified. We interviewed 15 purposefully selected individuals working in these institutions. The interviews were conducted based on structured interview guide in the form of two in-depth interviews. Data was analyzed through framework analysis.Results: Six themes were recognized regarding charity institutions management. They included institution practice scope, resourcing, type of DONATIONs, resource utilization pattern, challenges and interactions with universities and other related institutes.Conclusion: Our findings indicated that primary health issues are not amongst the priorities of the studied charities. On the other hand, as DONATIONs are not a sustainable resource, other specific resources are necessary. DONATIONs should be directed toward the objectives of institutions. Legal and administrative obstacles have to be completely eliminated. Medical universities and other organizations should continue their mutual relationship with charities to facilitate the implementation of charities’ plans.
