East African Health Budgets 2010/2011: An analysis of financing for essential medicines

A report analyzing budgetary allocations to health in four East African countries has been finalized. The report which covers Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania was commissioned by HAI Africa in consultation with the Kenya health CSOs network. Its aim was to draw comparison on how different states in the region prioritise health and to establish how far they are in achieving relevant targets that they have committed to. Such targets include the Abuja commitment on allocating at least 15 per cent on national budgets to health, the MDGs and relevant WHO thresholds on health financing.

The study, while focused on broad allocations to health, also analysed specific allocations to maternal and child health, primary health care amongst others. The data highlights the significant role played by various development partners in resourcing key areas such as the fight against HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. The report will be used to support advocacy seeking continued prioritization of health in the national budgeting process across the EAC.
