Joint Financing Agreement (JFA) for the Health SWAp
signed in September 2010:
• Ministry of Finance
• Ministries of Health (MOMS, MOPHS)
• DANIDA, World Bank
• Other partners expected to join over time
• Creates joint funding baskets for service delivery at
all levels, procurement, HRH, capacity and systems
development
Monitoring the Partnership
• Code of Conduct (COC) performance
reviewed for past 3 years as part of annual
sector performance monitoring processes.
• COC indicators largely match Paris
Declaration and IHP+ partnership indicators.
• COC tools still need improvement and are
reviewed and updated annually based on
reporting experiences.
Status and Progress
Country Ownership
 Split of MOH into MOMS and MOPHS in 2008
has fragmented leadership in the sector.
 Quality of coordinating structures is improving,
but still needs attention.
 New challenges for the sector are emerging
from new Constitution – decentralization, and
constitutional “right to health”
Status and Progress
Alignment with Country Systems
 Remains a challenge: DPs perceive GOK
systems to still be weak and high-risk for
channeling funds and monitoring inputs.
 Systems-strengthening efforts are in progress,
but are not well harmonized and coordinated.
 Some partners cannot move towards budget
support, but all are willing to improve efforts to
strengthen GOK systems.
Status and Progress
Harmonisation



Still a challenge: many parallel structures and
processes place undue burdens on MOHs and result
in duplication of efforts and fragmented support to
national programmes.
But there is renewed commitment from all partners to
improve on harmonization and coordination.
New JFA provides opportunities for coordinated
basket funding.
Status and Progress
Managing for Results
 Joint planning and review processes have
improved considerably, but still need attention.
 HMIS systems are providing better quality
data, and systems strengthening continues.
 Data to monitor equity issues is improving.
 Use of data for decision-making still needs
improvement at all levels.
Status and Progress
Mutual Accountability
 Work on improving comprehensive sector
budget and expenditure reporting and analysis
continues.
 Sector reporting to the public on plans and
achievements needs more attention.
