In collaboration with: I Aga Khan Foundation I Bitrán y Asociados I BRAC University I Broad Branch Associates I Deloitte Consulting, LLP I Forum One Communications I RTI International I Training Resources Group I Tulane Universitys School of Public Health Experiences from the field: Country-level strategies for resource tracking harmonization and impact Montreux, November Douglas M. Glandon, MPH Health Systems 20/20

2 2 Example 1: Coordinated implementation of RT activities (NASA & NHA) Concept Challenges Potential solutions Example 2: Common database for tracking donor & NGO spending Concept Challenges Potential solutions Overview

3 3 3 Concept: Capitalize on overlaps to consolidate data collection for multiple RT activities Coordinating National Health Accounts (NHA) and National AIDS Spending Assessments (NASA) has the potential to: Reduce the burden of data reporting on all partners Minimize time and money wasted on duplicative tasks Produce consistent, complementary results to inform policy Bring together inter-sectoral stakeholders

4 4 4 Harmonizing NHA & NASA in the field Rwanda (2007-8, 2010) NHA/NASA crosswalk tables applied to NHA estimation Namibia (2010) Joint NHA/NASA data collection, report with UNAIDS DRC (2010) Joint NHA/NASA data collection with UNAIDS, PNMLS Ethiopia ( ) Collaboration with UNAIDS in NHA estimation; NHA figures to be used to generate UNGASS tables Vietnam ( ) Joint NHA/NASA data collection with UNAIDS

5 5 Example 1: Coordinated implementation of RT activities (NASA & NHA) Concept Challenges Potential solutions Example 2: Common database for tracking donor & NGO spending Concept Challenges Potential solutions Overview

6 6 Coordinated implementation of RT activities (NASA & NHA) Different counterparts, stakeholders for each RT activity Differences in intended use of results by stakeholders Timelines for implementation, reporting, etc. Consistency in local capacity-building Funding mechanisms Data needs, methods of data collection and analysis Potential for inconsistency of results PoliticalLogisticalTechnical Challenges

7 7 Coordinated implementation of RT activities (NASA & NHA) Frame the activity as part of institutionalizing RT Emphasize collaboration at stakeholder meetings Joint reports (or joint sections) Clear division of responsibilities up front Train local counterpart staff on joint methodology Hire the same consultant to work on both RT activities Combined technical working sessions Single set of data collection instruments Single data collection effort PoliticalLogisticalTechnical Potential Solutions

8 8 Example 1: Coordinated implementation of RT activities (NASA & NHA) Concept Challenges Potential solutions Example 2: Common database for tracking donor & NGO spending Concept Challenges Potential solutions Overview

9 9 Concept: Resource tracking software that collects and stores health expenditure data from donors and NGOs in a country Increased data consistency, comparability, and availability for health policy planning Faster and easier for partners to complete spending reports Improved coordination of health sector spending

10 10 Example 1: Coordinated implementation of RT activities (NASA & NHA) Concept Challenges Potential solutions Example 2: Common database for tracking donor & NGO spending Concept Challenges Potential solutions Overview

11 11 Challenge: Differences in methods and definitions between resource tracking activities Potential solution: Define common classification criteria for expenditures

12 12 Challenge: Potential overlap/duplication of existing RT activities, health information system Potential solution: Integrate database with existing data sources, data needs

13 13 Potential solution: Design database to produce reports stakeholders want Challenge: Initial added reporting burden until database replaces other RT activities

14 14 Potential solution: Develop open source software with Ministry of Health programmers; provide training Challenge: Maintenance, improvement and use of the RT database
