Budget advocacy in Tanzania has helped to increase prioritization of health in the government’s annual budget; unfortunately, budgeting does not always translate into actual expenditure because potential obstacles in the fund disbursement process may contribute to underperformance in budget execution.
HP+ assessed the government of Tanzania’s budget release and execution performance during 2016/17 for allocations related to HIV and the procurement and delivery of essential medicines and commodities. HP+ also identified bottlenecks and weaknesses in the process and provided recommendations for practices to help improve the likelihood that funds will be disbursed on time.
