CWGH Input to the 2018 National Health Budget Consultations

CWGH, October 2017. "The formulation of the National Budget is an area that requires greater participation of the community. Community participation in health matters and budget formulation gives the citizens an opportunity for their voices to be incorporated in the National Budget as provided for in the Constitution and the Public Finance Management Act. The CWGH undertook consultations in the 10 provinces of the country were the CWGH is operational and the sample of respondents included CWGH national members,  CWGH District Health Forums, Health Centre Committee (HCC) members, Village Health Workers (VHWs) and District Health Executive (DHE) members with a balance between men and women. This submission captures the main issues that came from these stakeholder consultations across the country on the state of health, its social determinants and what must be done to address the challenges plaguing the health care system. This position paper is therefore a synthesis of the views of the citizens towards the National Budget."
