About this product
- DescriptionThis study reviews trends in aid provided to the health sector in Somalia over 2000-2009. It is a testimony to the commitment of dors and implementers who have relentlessly tried to improve the dire health situation of millions of Somalis. At the same time, this study is a wake-up call for all dors and implementers. Have dors been generous eugh? Have millions of dollars been invested in the most efficient way to maximise results? Did dors choose the right priorities? Did they stay the course? Did they learn from their own mistakes? The answers are mixed. Dors stepped up their contributions over the decade: some new financiers came, some others left, but overall, financial support has been constantly increasing. Emergencies took up 30 percent of the overall funding, thus demonstrating the impact on the health sector of man-made and natural disasters. Only 20 percent was allocated for horizontal programmes, with increasing funds over the last part of the decade. Vertical programmes dominated aid financing for health: in the case of AIDS, TB, and malaria, the generous funding of the last years of the decade do t appear justifiable. Malnutrition, EPI, and reproductive health programmes never got the attention they deserved. The key conclusion of this study is that dors' funding for public health in Somalia over the past decade could have been used more strategically. Better coordination among dors, local authorities, and implementers is w needed to avoid the mistakes of the past and to ensure that priority setting for future interventions is more evidence based and more results oriented.
