This guide provides important health budget information for civil society organizations and other implementing partners who work on health budget advocacy. It describes the Tanzanian government’s budget structure, budgeting process for health, and the schedule followed by the government at the central government, local government authority, and heath facility level. It also provides information on key actors involved, suggests entry points during the budget cycle where advocates can be most effective seeking to influence change, describes strategies for budget advocacy, and features case studies from organizations working on health budget advocacy in Tanzania. The guide is an update of a 2013 version and reflects new government guidance on the budget process and new health sector financing reforms.
